Photographer Michael Shainblum is back with another amazing time-lapse video called ‘Into The Atmosphere’, in which he captures the lesser known natural areas of California.

For this stunning video, Shainblum visited locations such as Yosemite, the Santa Barbara Mountains, Anza Borrego Desert, and the Alabama Hills to capture over 75,000 images. It took him a year to complete the project, and about 12,400 images were used in the final video.

“‘Into The Atmosphere’, is my tribute to the state of California and the beautiful deserts, mountains and coastlines that exist there,” wrote Shainblum. “This video showcases a variety of national/state parks as well as less recognized natural areas.”

“The video also focuses on clouds, fog and interesting atmospheric conditions. Although California is known for blue sunshine skies, seeing a colorful storm cloud over Half Dome or an incredible sunset at the La Jolla Coves is really a sight to see. The goal of this video is to show these environments in their best possible light.”
