The official music video for David Helpling's "As The World Falls Away" created by Shawn Malone of Lake Superior Photo. Featuring Shawn's latest cinematic Time-lapse work filmed entirely in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with sequences from NASA's ISS, here the images and music merge as one in this stunning visual journey.
Most of the scenes were shot in 2014, including scenes from the record breaking cold winter on icy Lake Superior, to a late September 2014 auroral substorm from Isle Royale National Park, Michigan. NASA images courtesy the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, NASA Johnson Space Center.
David is a North American Ambient Electronic recording artist on the Spotted Peccary Label. After a Trilogy of epic collaborative releases with Jon Jenkins, David is back in the studio working on his first solo release in over a decade. As The World Falls Away is a taste of things to come and is available as a free download at http://www.deepexile.com.

Mother Nature wants us folks in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to enjoy winter just a little longer, so when it snows, bring snowshoes.... over a foot of snow is pictured here in the Porcupine Mountains State Park portion of the video- having fallen on May2-3rd 2013.
Join me for a 5 minute quick edit touring western UP waterfalls during Spring runoff on the Sturgeon, Ontonagon and Presque Isle Rivers.
Waterfalls pictured include Canyon Falls, Bond Falls, Manido Falls, Manhebezo Falls and the Unnamed falls and the Presque Isle swing bridge in Porcupine Mountains State Park.
I could not get to the base of Bond Falls out of concern for safety, the river was running over the stairs down to the base of the falls.
Most memorable was the power of the Presque Isle River and the volume of water flowing in it, especially the last few scenes.
It is so nice to see banks full of water after hiking much of this empty riverbed last October, even with the trees drenched in snow and ice.
Hi rez photographs are available of all the scenes you see here.
Hi rez video is also available- video here is very low res.
