Apparently I could do nothing but post incredible time lapse videos all the time. Watch this staggeringly beautiful video, "Yosemite", and be in awe.

[YES, make it full screen and HD!] The video

was made by Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty, and the music? "Outro", by a group called M83.

Ha! That's the name of a spiral galaxy I've written about once

or twice

before. Even thrice

. And it's appropriate, given how prominently our own galaxy features in this video. The shots of the park during the day aren't too shabby, either. I've lived out west for twelve years now, and I've never made it to Yosemite park. Maybe it's time to change that.

Tip o' the piton to Chris Perriman.
