It's the colors that get you when you're out in nature. If you live in a city, you're mostly dealing with drabs of gray speckled with Instagrams of exposed red bricks. If you live in the suburbs, you'll see manicured lawns, potted trees, stucco and tile roofs until you're myopic. But if you're outside, like really outside, you'll see ballets of pink, golden orgies, blistering diamonds, the honesty of red and mounds of dirt that are baked with life. It's a wonderful world out there and we don't see it enough.
As pointed out by Visual News, Andrew Walker took a tour of the western United States in places like Montana and Arizona, temperatures of 100 degrees to -9, elevations of 12,000 feet to 225 feet above sea level to photograph over 15,000 pictures of natural beauty. He put it all together in the time lapse below called Journey Part 1. I hope the parts never end.
