Part Two (Night) of a two part series. A short glimpse of a Burning Man experience. Hope you enjoy it. If you missed part one, you'll find it here: vimeo.com/31687016
Shot in August/September 2011 using a (very dusty) Canon 7D with 70-200 f.40L, a 50mm 1.8, and a 10-24mm Tamron
Thanks to all the creative folks whose crazy and incredible contraptions are captured in the film including the wonderful people at billionjellybloom.org who created the amazing "jellyscape" that opens the film.
A timelapse video of Saturday evening, shot from a hillside on the Western edge of the Black Rock playa.
After the last rays of the sun paint the top of Old Razorback, night falls, and the timelapse shows the Man burning. Watch for the red flare just before the burn fireworks start. After the burn, I switched lenses to show a wider view of Black Rock City and this shot went until just before 4am when my batteries ran out.
Thanks to my wife Kirsten for her patience and willingness to watch the end of her sixth Burning Man from outside the trash fence.
Music is "Big BW" by Aotearoa's Fat Freddy's Drop. Thanks to the team of Kiwis for this year's magnificent Temple of Transition.
The advent of knowing.
The lovers and dreamers.
The laser connections.
These are what bring life out of light while energy dances out of desolate dust. All that is familiar and foreign comes together in who we are and what we want to be... challenging nature and inviting more of ourselves:)
