This majestic nature time lapse will make you want to go outdoors more

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.

Stunning photography. I'd probably play this at my termination in the Soylent Green future.

I don't know a single person, almost of any age, that wouldn't find this intriguing, beautiful or interesting. I do know that most of them would be scared to death to try and understand those places shown in the video up close and personal like.

I like this art, truly, and for that I have nothing but gratitude and maybe that's enough. But I also ask myself if it's really creating any kind of people behavior change in regards to the environment? I'm not even sure if that question is valid or if it even matters - maybe I should just play it again and plan my next Na Pali Coast trip.
