Time-lapse video: Exploring Yosemite

Backpackers Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill produced a time-lapse video of photography they took over a 10-month period spent exploring Yosemite National Park. The duo covered more than 200 miles, and captured images and video on 45 days during their visit to the park.

Delehanty and Neill met through the video sharing website Vimeo, and began the project in January 2012. The idea for the full project came after their first overnight trip to Half Dome.

“On that first trip, we carried loads of camera equipment to Half Dome’s summit, where we shot time-lapse all night and through the morning,” the website stated. “Being on Half Dome that night felt like being on another planet, a smooth granite surface under our feet and endless space spinning overhead. The morning’s sunrise felt like the first proper sunrise we’d ever witnessed. We decided to team up and document the experience together for others to see.”

The time-lapse video, which was published on Vimeo two weeks ago, was chosen as a “Staff Pick” on the website. Viewers are able to donate to help preserve Yosemite through a “Vimeo Tip Jar” with proceeds going to the Yosemite Conservancy.
