"The Dance - Timelapse Video 4K"

Desert Southwest, includes arid landscape of the Mojave, Navajo and the Sonoran. From natural sandstones in Utah to towering buttes of Arizona to the Great Basin in eastern California, this dry desert carries its own colors and rhythms. Light from the stars and that of the sun, transforms this desert terrain into even more vivid scenes that changes dramatically from one horizon to another.

At dark, nothing is more magical than watching the meteor shower lit up the sky with great intensity over the national monument and national parks of American Southwest. The light pollution here is so minimal that shooting star would magically appear in the blink of an eye.

This timelapse film features the Perseid Meteor Shower as seen from East Pocket in Flagstaff. Geminid Meteor Shower captured from Sunset Crater in Sedona. And the Leonids from Death Valley National park, California. This was filmed with: Nikon D810, DJI Phantom 4 Pro, DJI Ronin S

    About Me

    They say life is best seen with eyes half-closed. For me, life is best seen with eyes half-closed on to my camera’s viewfinder. Through its lens, I see myriad images, shapes and colors. The unusual. The off-the-cuff. The waylaid. And the meandering. I am Prashant. International Award Winning Photographer. I have been shooting professionally for 7-8 years now. Yet, I have been a photographer all my life. My photo art leans towards Mother Nature, the beauty of night, snapshots of travel to exotic places – both on the ground and on Cloud 9.
