This video was shot on 35mm film back in 1989. I built a panning head from a Meade LX5 telescope head.
I wanted my films to remind us of the magnificent side of nature in hopes we would temper our relentless exploitation of her and replace it with a culture living in more harmony with her instead.
Timelapse was rare in those days compared to todays digital age. I knew the technique would have a powerful impact and I hoped viewers would feel an exhilaration that moved them to love and protect our earth that is so beautiful and majestic.
