Yosemite HD II, A Stunning Culmination Of 2 Years Of Work

By Anthony Thurston on March 4th 2014

It has been a while since I shared a good time-lapse, and even if it were a more regular occurrence, this one would deserve a feature. Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places in the continental US, and this timelapse was filmed throughout a 200+ mile backpacking experience through the area.


The team, lead by Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill of Project Yosemite,  spent a combined total of around 45 days in the Yosemite National Park. It took close to 2 years to film and process all of the footage into the absolutely stunning timelapse video that you see below. Enjoy.

Besides being a little long (I can only stomach so much of timelapse footage), I feel like this is a great video. It shows the raw beauty and majesty of the Yosemite area, and really gives a sense of the place.

It is also super inspiring, and as usual, has given me the bug to go out and do a timelapse of my own.

    Very nice video. I dont think I would be able to spend two years on a single project. Thank goodness for the people that will do it!
