Stunning Timelapse: Range of Light

Yosemite National Park is known for its stunning granite cliffs, magnificent waterfalls, and clear night skies. See them all here in a timelapse video from Shawn Reeder, called “Yosemite Range of Light.” You’ll witness light and darkness descending on the mountains and landscape, with gorgeous skyscapes throughout. Don’t miss seeing the waterfall off in the distance in the first part of the video!

  • Time and light,
    Old fires in rock and heaven,
    Playing on the quickened waters
    Beneath the living sky.

  • What a world! What a talent!

    If you don't watch it several times, you miss some of the inconspicuous details, like the lamps from the cliff-climbers at ~2:00 mark.

    For me, it was a revelation seeing that moon light can create rainbows, as seen at 2:15 and 2:22.
