This amazing video – which captures Yosemite National Park’s 1,200 square miles (about 3,000 square kilometers) of beautiful scenery – first came to light about a year ago via Vimeo. Today (January 17, 2013), Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty’s Yosemite HD project has been viewed over 3 million times!
The project totaled 19 days of shooting over the course of three-and-a-half months. It truly is breathtaking. Make sure to stay on the lookout for the meteor shower that happens about halfway through the video.
According to Delehanty, the video team’s main goal was to inspire people to visit Yosemite National Park. He said:
We wanted to create something that would showcase the entire place, not just one location,to show someone how beautiful Yosemite is, and to inspire people to go again, and relive the experience.
If this doesn’t make you want to go visit Yosemite, nothing will!
Bottom line: This post contains an awesome video from Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty’s Yosemite HD project, showing the breath-taking scenery in California’s Yosemite National Park.
