Yosemite as you've never seen it before

'Project Yosemite' is an attempt to film Yosemite National Park from a new perspective. The team writes:

Project Yosemite is a collaborative project by Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty. What started as an idea turned into an ongoing adventure to timelapse Yosemite in a extreme way.

We were complete strangers before it all started, but after we met on Vimeo our idea came into sight, and then began the challenge to make numerous trips to YNP where we would capture the beautiful landscape it offers for visitors every year.

There's more at the link. Here's the first fruits of their project: a time-lapse video made up of thousands of still images. It's worth watching in full-screen mode. Details of the music, etc. may be found at the video's home page.

And here's a 'making of' video showing how they did it.

That's pretty impressive! I look forward to future efforts by the project.

Both videos are awesome. I'm sending the link to two people who might like them: my art teacher whose charcoal works of Half Dome are in a touring exhibition, and a photographer who has been to China and back.
Yosemite is truly awe-inspiring. Thanks for the post.
