Yosemite Range of Light

Right about 2:01, you can see the lights of climbers on El Cap.

Gorgeous. Thanks. Makes me want to get in my car right this minute and go. It's only four or five hours....

Beautiful videos. Could do without the music in the first one though. I'd recommend the second one.

The two Yosemite videos provide an excellent example of the unexpected importance of background music.

In watching the currently linked one, I grew increasingly impatient despite the beautiful visuals. Dear God, was that an actual gong at the end?

Upon watching the previously linked video, I felt a sense of relaxing calm wash over me.

I shut it off a minute in. And I didn't have the music playing either. I'm really tired of these "lovely" time lapse videos where everything is moving thanks to some motion control rig. Personally, when I'm enjoying lovely scenery, I just sit still and watch. Videos like this make me feel anxious and nervous, because I want shit to just stop moving.

Actually, at this point, I wouldn't mind seeing a time lapse video of a jumping shark.

When jumping, sharks don't float like clouds. Except in space.

Until then, here's a timelapse (Minecraft) shark.

At the risk of taking the wind out of the post, TEDx commissioned a time-lapse of Portland that was released a few days ago: Finding Portland.
