Here’s a wonderful new timelapse from photographer John Ecklund, a photographer from Portland, Oregon. He captures incredible views of the Milky Way over Crater Lake, Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, the Painted Hills and more, even nabbing a few meteors and a pass of the International Space Station.

“I choose to shoot locations that appeal to the way I would like to interpret the story of time,” says Ecklund. “Here in the Pacific Northwest, there are endless opportunities to document the magnificence of the world around us. I have discovered that when time is the storyteller, a special kind of truth emerges.”

Ecklund began this timelapse project in July 2011 and shot the final scene in August 2012, and in total took approximately 260,000 images, which took up 6.3 terabytes of hard drive space!

Make sure the HD is on, put it in full screen, put the speakers on medium, and sit back for the ultimate getaway to the Pacific Northwest without leaving your chair.

    Breathtaking glimpses into the “story of time”: animated images of the heavens stellar majesty, captured in grand terrestrial frames of various clime, from one artful point of view, sublime.

    “…there are endless opportunities to document the magnificence of the world around us. I have discovered that when time is the storyteller, a special kind of truth emerges.”

    Touches on the profound, in words to ponder.

    Are the treasures of Earth–the visible and invisible, what is observable in real-time passage, or only elusively perceived in subtle currents of its local flow, through successive dimensions of measured space, within the wider seasons of the cycles of time–beyond human reckoning?
