Crater Lake time lapse

I’m currently in the middle of an editing project, so today’s post will be something of a freebie. It’s a time lapse taken in Oregon’s only national park (and one of the most beautiful places in the world, in my entirely unbiased opinion): Crater Lake.

The lake is inside a huge volcanic caldera, and far from any town. Anyone staying the night will be treated to one of the most glorious night views available, with no light pollution and the entire sky reflecting off the lake below. I can highly recommend staying at the lodge, getting a drink, and sitting out on one of the rocking chairs in back.

This video, while missing the relax-with-a-drink part, captures the beauty of the Crater Lake night sky. Do watch it full screen.

    Truly splendid, though a tad too rapid 😮 🙂
    No one can be biased when referring to perfection on Earth, right? ^^

    Editing? …..

    If that is what freebies are, give me some more!

    After last Wallpaper Monday, I was thinking that while you are preparing your trip you could treat us with a few Oregonian singularities.
    I have just seen this in Select Category: Oregon (11)
    Time to increase that number? 🙂

    I know that some posts related to Oregon are not included in that figure by categories; it was some not-so-subtle pressure, sorry 🙂

    That’s really beautiful. I’ve never seen the Milky Way with my own eyes before. I need to get back to Crater Lake sooner than later. Thanks for the nudge. 🙂
