sierra nevada sunrise


Videographer Michael Shainblum combined many of his timelapse views of Mountains of North America into this video clip. Many of the shots are of Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the contiguous 48 United States, and are taken from Owens Valley to the East. Whitney is the tallest peak in the shot you see paused at the opening. Other shots throughout California and I think into canada appear as well.

Watch on

On the Summer Solstice this year the full Strawberry moon set just after sunrise before it rose again shortly after sunset that evening. This image was taken a few minutes later than the prior one that I uploaded from this morning.


Beautiful - sunrise timelapse from California in the Volcanic Tablelands north of Bishop - terrain carved during the eruption of the Long Valley Caldera just to the north.
