“We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us. Our flesh-and-bone tabernacle seems transparent as glass to the beauty about us, as if truly an inseparable part of it, thrilling with the air and trees, streams and rocks, in the waves of the sun,—a part of all nature, neither old nor young, sick nor well, but immortal.”
— John Muir from My First Summer in the Sierra (1911)
Designated a World Heritage Site in 1984, Yosemite is internationally recognized for its spectacular granite cliffs, waterfalls, clear streams, and Giant Sequoia groves. Through the use of time-lapse photography combined with controlled-motion dollies, Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty have created a video that attempts to capture the grandeur and emotional presence of Yosemite National Park. It seemed the perfect way to walk you into the weekend.
