Breathtaking Timelapse of World Landscapes

Photographer Dustin Farrell has created this breathtaking timelapse of the Earth, featuring images of landscapes taken from around the world.

The video features brilliant images of Iceland, the Grand Canyon, Utah, Canyonlands National Park and Southern California. To capture each shot, Farrell used a Canon 5D Mark 3 and a 5D2.

In an interview with Mashable Farrell says, “The reason I enjoy shooting time lapse is because I can produce videos that are currently not possible with normal video and cinema cameras”. He goes on to explain  “My shot of the Milky Way at 2:33 is only possible with a camera that can shoot very long exposures. In the scene at 3:20, of the beach in Iceland, the contrast was far too much to be captured with a single exposure. A still camera gives me the option of combining multiple exposures to produce a more pleasing high dynamic range (HDR) image.”
