There's no shortage of gorgeous time-lapse videos going around. But Michael Shainblum's "Into the Atmosphere" -- an ode to California starring its atmospheric elements -- is perhaps the most breathtaking.
The video, a 3.5 minute montage featuring 12,400 photos, focuses not on the state's forests or cities, but rather California's rolling fog, changing sky and sparkling sea.
'"Into The Atmosphere,' is my tribute to the state of California and the beautiful deserts, mountains and coastlines that exist there," wrote Shainblum on Vimeo. "Although California is known for blue sunshine skies, seeing a colorful storm cloud over Half Dome or an incredible sunset at the La Jolla Coves is really a sight to see."
We couldn't agree more.
