This new timelapse from Brad Goldpaint is moving is every sense of the word. Of course, the images transition and move through time, but the mood it evokes moves your soul. There’s a star-trails sequence over Mount Shasta in California starting at about 2:15 that is utterly jaw-dropping.
Goldpaint wrote us to say he discovered his passion for photography shortly after his mother’s passing while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail 3 years ago. “This time-lapse video is my visual representation of how the night sky and landscapes co-exist within a world of contradictions,” he said. “I hope this connection between heaven and earth inspires you to discover and create your own opportunities, to reach your rightful place within two worlds.”
