Amazing Yosemite Time-Lapse Video

Everyone knows that Yosemite National Park is one of America’s most beautiful places. Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls, and a host of other natural wonders make Yosemite an iconic symbol of the American West. And while many of us have hiked in Yosemite or camped in the picturesque valley, a new video reveals a deeper layer of beauty and awe.

Videographers Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty have collaborated to create a stunning time-lapse, high-definition look at Yosemite. The video, titled Project Yosemite, captures sunrises and sunsets, stars swirling about the night sky, and trees trembling in high mountain winds.

Neill and Delehanty explain: “What started as an idea turned into an ongoing adventure to timelapse Yosemite in an 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 Yosemite National Park where we would capture the beautiful landscape it offers for visitors every year.”

Yosemite, along with Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada range, is one of the natural treasures of California that Earthjustice is dedicated to protecting. Back in May 2010, Earthjustice’s campaign manager Sam Edmondson filed a trail report detailing his hike through Yosemite’s Hetch Hetchy Valley.
