The Breathtaking Beauty of the Western US Captured in Time-Lapse

It’s getting harder and harder for photographers who shoot time-lapse to get our attention. You see, they’re getting too darn good, and so gorgeous time-lapse after gorgeous time-lapse makes its way across our computer screens forcing us to be very picky.

That said, veteran time-lapse photographer Andrew Walker‘s recently released “Journey Part 1″ time-lapse had no issue getting our approval, because it’s absolutely, unequivocally breathtaking.

In all, the time-lapse consists of some 15,000 photos that Walker — who has 7 years experience creating motion time-lapses like this one — captured in the western half of the US. As he explains in the video description:

The shots ranged from very different locations. From Montana to Arizona and most weren’t easy to get to but of course that makes them worth going to. The locations captured ranged in temps of 100 degrees to -9 degrees and in elevations of 12,000 feet to 225 feet below sea level.

If you’d like to see more of Walker’s work, head over to his Vimeo page, check out 599 Productions, or follow him on Twitter by following the corresponding links. But before you do any of that, sit back, relax, crank up the volume, dim the lights, and start your weekend off on the right foot.
