A 10-Month Timelapse Photography Adventure Through Yosemite

Every year, Yosemite National Park sees more than 3.7 million visitors hike through the implacable seven-square-mile Yosemite Valley. Since it’s blessed with brilliant granite cliffs, pristine streams and ancient Giant Sequoias, you can understand why two landscape photographers, Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill, would spend 10 months hiking 200 miles for 45 solid days to produce this astonishing timelapse video:

The boys shot this beauty on a Canon 5D Mark III and Sony FS700, and hiked not just through the popular Yosemite Valley, but also spent nights atop Half Dome, El Capitan, and Clouds Rest. They say their gear weighed around 70 pounds in total.
