My head’s still fuzzy from running my marathon this morning, so all it can really handle is looking at mesmerizing startrails and gorgeous astroscapes. But, um, you guys see the dragons too, right?
Borrego Stardance is the latest from Gavin Heffernan and Sunchaser Pictures. It takes us to the town of Borrego Springs, California, home to a rather motley assortment of strange metal sculptures (dragons, scorpions, mammoths, etc.) and one of the world’s handful of official “dark sky communities”, where access to the deepest reaches of the cosmos is actively protected from urban light pollution.
Popular Science called this the most trippy time lapse they’d ever seen, and I have to agree. In a good way.
You’re gonna want to give this one the full screen, speakers up treatment.
Sculpture by Ricardo Breceda, located in Borrego Springs, California. More information regarding the Breceda sculptures (technique, material, history, etc.) available at the Ricardo Breceda website. Photo taken November 16, 2011.
