Fathom 4K is a journey into Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and the Wyoming wilderness. It is a film about the stories told by nature through the natural world: clouds, stars, trees, rivers, geysers, mountains and more.
In our everyday lives, it is difficult to observe these stories being told. To the casual eye, our world appears to be static and unchanging. But these stories are seldom told on the human scale. They are often told on the scale of cosmic or geologic time. Years, centuries, millennia and eons.
In the greater scheme of things, our lives are just a blip. In order to understand the universe and hear the stories told by nature, we have to go beyond our immediate senses and find ways to look deeper -- both within ourselves and out there in the natural world.
This is some of the timelapse sequences I recorded in Iceland in september of 2013.
Over three weeks we drove nearly 5500km taking more than 40000 photos on the way.
Recorded with Nikon cameras and lenses. Post-processed with LRTimelapse, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe After Effects. Motion control sequences done with a Stage One dolly from Dynamic Perception and a Celestron Skywatcher pan/tilt head.
