Beautiful Compilation of Timelapse Clips by Mike Flores

This is a stunning montage of timelapse clips created by Mike Flores during the past year. Many of the scenes are layered beautifully, with the desert in the foreground, clouds whizzing across the sky, and the universe spinning brightly in the background.

Shots in which the camera moves were created using two custom track and dolly systems that Flores created using off-the-shelf parts. The photographs were made with a Canon 5D Mark II with three lenses: the 16-35mm f2.8 II, 14mm f2.8 II, and 24mm f1.4 II. The music in the background is from the movie Inception.
