Yosemite Time Lapse Shows National Park's Sunrises, Sunsets (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Mother Nature is pretty spectacular on her own, but when her beauty is enhanced with technology, the results can be truly breathtaking.

This time lapse video of Yosemite National Park weaves scenery of the park's sunrises, sunsets and starry sky into a continuous, stunning tribute to one of the country's best-known parks.

The video was produced by Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty, two time lapse aficionados who met through video sharing site Vimeo and decided to take on what they dubbed "Project Yosemite."

The vistas were shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, with a variety of Canon L and Zeiss CP.2 lenses, according to the video description.

The men spent about 19 days in the park between September and November, sometimes braving harsh elements, to capture the footage they needed, according to the Atlantic.

On Jan. 21, windy conditions at Yosemite caused a tree to fall on an employee's tent, killing park ranger Ryan Hiller, according to the Associated Press.

Neill and Delehanty paid tribute to Hiller on their Vimeo channel.
