The sky over the inhospitable Death Valley can be quite breathtaking
Last year we saw some stunning timelapses from the ISS, but you don't have to be in space to capture awe inspiring images, you can do it quite well from back here on Earth, as long as you're willing to put in the effort.Case in point is this amazing video shot in Death Valley, one of the most inhospitable places on Earth. It's also a great place for space photography, far from any sources of light and with a relatively still atmosphere at night.
The video was shot on December 13 last year, during the peak of the Geminid meteor shower. You can see several meteors blazing the sky in the timelapse, but the stars themselves provide an epic show.
If you're interested in the details, the team used a Canon 5D and a Canon 7D, with a 24mm/1.4 lens and a 28mm/1.8 lens respectively. The song's Stay Down (Ambient) by Moby.
