Beautiful Astrophotography Time-Lapse Captures Stars and Meteors over the Parks of California

It’s almost no argument that astrophotography and time-lapse photography were made to be together. Gavin Heffernan, a man who certainly knows his way around both, shows us why with the amazing video you see above. Depicting the night sky over Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Parks in California, we’re treated with mother nature at its finest, the milky way making the perfect backdrop for the scenery.

If you’re curious as to how the video came about, from his travels to the gear and techniques used, Producer John C. Brookins created a convenient little BTS video, which can be seen below.

Be sure to give both videos a watch as they’re both under four minutes. To keep up with Heffernan and his work, you can give him a follow over on Vimeo.

    Too negative to say it’s one of the least inspiring time lapses I’ve seen in a while?
