Mid-Week Refresh: Watch Our Beautiful Planet on Timelapse Video

It’s Wednesday — the proverbial “hump-day.” Here in the Washington D.C. area, it’s been raining for days. It is definitely time for some mid-week inspiration!

Check out Tom Lowe’s latest creation, a preview of his debut film Timescapes 4K. Gorgeous waterfalls, breathtaking landscapes, a Milky Way that truly astounds: It is a portrait of the American Southwest. Lowe uses timelapse video, which was filmed and edited at four times higher resolution than regular HD video.

National Wildlife Federation is dedicated to conserving wild places, like the ones seen in this video. What was your favorite scene? Tell us in the comments below.

Also, don’t settle for just watching nature on a screen. We’ve got great ideas for how to Be Out There!
