Lovely New Timelapse: Chasing Starlight in the Canadian Rockies

Ready for an adventure? One of our favorite photographers, Jack Fusco, created this stunning travel video for Travel Alberta and viewing it might be enough to make you start packing your bags.

“There’s a certain feeling that you get from standing under a truly dark sky for the first time,” Jack wrote. “Although it’s hard describe the exact feeling of awe that’s felt, it’s an experience that doesn’t leave you. In fact, it’s something that can change you. It can make you forget about sleeping when the sun has set and instead readies you for an adventure. This timelapse is about capturing the adventure of chasing star filled skies and the feeling you get from experiencing it. I hope it inspires people to find their own adventure chasing the stars.”

See some of his beautiful still images from his photo-shoot below:

Chasing Starlight was shot using a Nikon D800E & a Nikon D810 equipped with Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 lenses. See more of Jack’s wonderful work at his website, Instagram, or Jack Fusco Photography.
