Timescapes are created from time-lapse photographs shot by Tom Lowe, the 2010 astronomy photographer of the year. The video here is titled 'Rapture,' and shows production footage from images shot over the summer of 2010.
Lowe’s phenomenal collection of time-lapse photography is captivating and magical. He claims that "every shot is straight out of the camera [...] no tricks or CGI or effects of any kind" were used. Lowe plans to assemble his photographs into a feature film that presents a motion-filled portrait of the American Southwest.
