Can Earth Look Any More Gorgeous Than This?

Tom Lowe has been restlessly working on Timescapes for more than two years now. You probably already saw the first trailer of this breathtaking ultra-HD silent film. This is the newest material. A must watch.

Vincent Laforet — the king of DLSR video — says that Lowe is the master of the skies and stars. He is. And not only because he was named Astronomy Photographer of the Year in 2010. It’s just that Lowe is producing some of the most exquisite footage I’ve ever seen this side of The Tree of Life (no wonder he is pals with Terrence Malick).

According to Laforet, Lowe is “shooting with Kessler motion control cranes and dollies, lenses from Canon, Leica, RED, Duclos and Arri Master Primes, with RED’s Epic camera, the Canon 5D MKII and the PL-modified Canon 1D MKIV by Denz as well.” He thinks Lowe is making the “most gorgeous footage I’ve ever seen shot on this continent in the last decade.”

I agree without reservations. [Timescapes via Vincent Laforet]
