(CBS News) Back in December we had a fan of The Feed, Gavin Heffernan, reach out to us with some wonderful work he and his team had created. Now, a bit over a month later, he’s reached out again with another piece above that is sure to give you a moment of beauty and meditation through the medium of time-lapse. I’d definitely recommend watching in high-definition if possible.
The latest piece entitled “Death Valley Dreamlapse” was created by Heffernan and his team, and posted by Vimeo user Sunchaser Pictures who write about the breath-taking work:
After the great response to our SUNCHASER STAR TRAILS video, my brave team and I trekked to the world-famous Eureka Dunes in Death Valley National Park to search for some of the darkest skies on Earth. Despite temps below freezing, we went on December 13th, 2012 – the night of the Geminid Meteor Shower Peak, and a time of great planetary alignment! Armed only with boxed wine, firewood, and our DSLRs, we had to conquer epic climbs, sand roads with the 4×4 Jeep, and the occasional UFO…
But it was all worth it when the skies cleared and showed us an incredible galactic palette! Star Trails shot at 25 sec exposures. No special effects used, just the rotation of the earth’s axis.
Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at The Feed again with another excellent and aesthetic piece of work that shows nature in all its wonder, Gavin!
