Night sky above Yosemite

From the U.S. National Park Service and Yosemite Conservancy comes this great short film about the skies above Yosemite NP. The distance to major cities and thus relative absence of light pollution makes for phantastic night skies. Astronomers and (time lapse) photographer and others take advantage of these conditions:

For best enjoyment make sure to crank up the resolution in YouTube and switch to full-screen playback.

The film is part of a series (Yosemite Nature Notes) and I have a feeling that subscribing to their YouTube channel oughta be worthwhile: http://www.youtube.com/user/yosemitenationalpark.

Time-lapse movie of shipping up to New York

Another New York find: If the evolution of the NYC skyline and street grid interested you, you might also fall for this time-lapse movie by H. Caesar of his arrival in NYC by ship (click on “vimeo” in below player to watch the video at bigger size):


A nice idea, to shoot time-lapse from a moving yet quite stable plat-form.
