Wonder in the sky

Time-Lapse: Into the Atmosphere
[Via Bad Astronomy]

Michael Shainblum is a photographer who makes exceptional time-lapse videos. His video “Existence” was spectacular, mixing the contrasts of urban and natural settings to great effect. Plus he turned me on to Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy soundtrack.

I was very excited when my pal (and accomplished photographer himself) Brad Goldpaint posted on Facebook that Shainblum had another video out. Called “Into the Atmosphere”, it does not disappoint.

You know the drill. Full screen. High-res. Volume up.


It is stunning throughout. But the nightime sky with the Milky Way rekindles the same sort of wonder that mankind used to have before electricity and technology speeded up the world.

So it is only fitting the technology that speeds up the world helps us reconnect with that wonder.
