It was so fun drawing all these gasters and I thank the creators for letting me. Just from one little sprite stemmed an outpouring of creativity; each gaster a separate character with their own unique backgrounds, traits, and personalities. The ECHO project showcased this, and it’s still an amazing thing. I know there are alot of Gasters I didn’t draw, but I can add more in if someone wants.
Epic night sky timelapse over Vermillion Cliffs National Monument - if you get to the 2nd half you’ll get a thunderstorm, star trails, and really creepy effect from clouds passing in long exposure/timelapse.
Happy anniversary to the Wilderness Act! On September 3, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed this landmark conservation legislation. The BLM has stewardship responsibilities for 223 Wilderness Areas with over 8.7 million acres in 10 Western States. These areas are protected in their undeveloped state and offer outstanding recreation opportunities for visitors willing to experience nature on its own terms. BLM managed wilderness areas include vast southwestern deserts, red-rock canyons, rugged Pacific coastline and alpine peaks.
Any video that starts with twilight over Tufa is likely to get my attention. This clip is labeled “Awake”, but it basically is a timelapse exploration of night - sunrise, sunset, and starry nights above a number of famous locations and national parks, mostly in the U.S. West.
Time lapse videos of sunrises, sunsets, and the night sky over the landscapes of the US west, including Yosemite, the Colorado River, the White Pocket at Vermillion Cliffs, and Joshua Tree National Park. I particularly enjoyed the shots of the shadows moving up and down the landscape at dawn and dusk. From the original video caption:
This short movie presents the predictability of our planetary system. Catch the first sun rays brushing over Half Dome in Yosemite. Watch the Moon setting to the West while the Milky Way is rising to the South East over Arizona. Follow the Milky Way spanning across the night sky, giving us just a glimpse of what else may be out there. Observe as the shadows are getting longer, and the Milky Way is rising from behind the moonlit landscape. Catch the Supermoon rising over Rodgers Peak and Half Dome.
