This whole project has been an amazing experience. The two of us became friends through Vimeo and explored a shared interest in timelapsing Yosemite National Park over an extended period of time. We'd like to expand this idea to other locations and would appreciate any suggestions for a future project.
Our hearts go out to the families of Markus Praxmarer who lost his life while climbing Half Dome on September 19th, 2011 and Ranger Ryan Hiller, who was crushed by a tree January 22nd 2012. They will be missed. (A photo of Ranger Ryan Hiller can be found to the right, above the statistics counter)

Love is a force that binds each and every one of us in this global community. At the end of the day, it’s all about love: it may be a wild love for adventure, love for each other or an insatiable love for living that keeps us going. We are in pursuit of stories with the common thread of love, loss and passion for living told by people who push their bodies, minds and lives to the limit.
