It was one hell of a journey during the fourteen months making Wyoming Wildscapes II, my second and final (maybe not!) Wyoming related time lapse project. Had plenty of adventures while working on this. Lightning almost got me a couple of times this summer, gear froze up in the winter (literally), and broke a few times (don't think most of the time lapse gear was meant for extended wilderness backpacking), all that fun stuff. Despite any minor set backs, this was without a doubt one of the most fulfilling personal projects I've ever undertaken. Saw some pretty amazing stuff along the way, this part of the country never ceases to amaze and surprise me.

This short time lapse video of the Northern Lights has been a long time in the making, since a Geomagnetic storm has to be really strong to be able to see them like this in Winnipeg. But my patience and willingness to stay up really late has payed off. The music is by Harold Kloser and Thomas Wanderer from the film 10,000 BC. And as with any time lapse video, a large part of my hard drive has been consumed by all the photos, many of which haven't made the cut.
I used Canon Cameras and Lenses, and the motion control was done with the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly, which was a fantastic piece of equipment and was essential in making this short video. After many days of quiet skies and a steep learning curve, I am happy with what I've been able to capture. Enjoy.
