Field Of View Extended Dakotalapse Video Featuring My Music

Field Of View – 4K Ultra HD Timelapse

Field Of View is the amazing new timelapse video from Randy Halverson at Dakotalapse which you can watch above. Randy describes some of his photography below:

Field Of View is a compilation of timelapse I have shot in the last year. The first shot of the sunset supercell was done on July 23, 2015. That storm dropped multiple Tornadoes in eastern South Dakota, I was shooting it from central SD. I shot timelapse of that same storm for almost 4 hours into the night. Other locations in the sequences are Aurora in central, western South Dakota and the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming. The Red Desert in Wyoming, Badlands and Buffalo Gap National Grasslands area of South Dakota. Bighorn and Teton Mountain areas in Wyoming.”

Randy Halverson

There’s also an extended 30+ minute version of the video available in 1080p featuring my atmospheric ambient music tracks Halo’s Edge and Orbital Drift which you can get directly from Dakotalapse here:

High Altitude Ballooning By Michael Mönch

High Altitude Ballooning

Check out this cool high altitude ballooning video from Michael Mönch which uses a weather balloon and 2,000 litres of helium to film a journey up to the outer reaches of the earth’s atmosphere. When the balloon finally bursts due to the low pressure at over 30,000 metres high, a parachute brings the camera safely back to earth and is located via GPS.

My ambient space music track Coronal Mass Ejection is used in the video.

How Far Away Is It – A Video Book By David Butler

How Far Away Is It – 03 – The Solar System (1080p)

How Far Away Is It is a video book by David Butler that examines the Hubble space telescope and details the distance between objects in our galaxy. The video is split into several chapters covering the Earth, the Solar System and the Heliosphere and you can watch the whole thing for free on YouTube and also on the official website at howfarawayisit.com

The video has been up for a while but only just come to my attention (my music track Exodus is featured several times in the video, as can be heard in the video clip above). It’s a fascinating and beautifully put together project about astrophysics, cosmology and the scale of the universe.

How Far Away Is It is a video book of Hubble and other space and ground based telescope pictures together with an illustrated explanation of how we know how far away these objects are – from your back yard to the most distant galaxies. How Small Is It takes you from your backyard to the smallest things that exist and covers the Higgs Boson.”

David Butler

The project has obviously been lovingly put together by David with a lot of care, experience and knowledge and it’s a fascinating look at the scale of our galaxy. A great learning resource about our galaxy and well worth a watch!
