The Grand Canyon Time Lapse So Jaw Dropping That You Don't Need To See It In Real Life

The Grand Canyon is one of those natural wonders you have to see in real life to truly appreciate. It's jaw droppingly gorgeous and looks like another world. Well, that's what I thought until I saw this time lapse of the Grand Canyon. Using over 80,000 photos, the video is better than an ordinary visit to Grand Canyon. After you watch this, you'd have seen it all.

Called Grand Canyon : Blink of Time and made by GOTM Films, the time lapse captures pretty much everything there is to see of the Grand Canyon (they even got a solar eclipse in there) and throws in a few shots of the Colorado River as well. The photos were taken over the course of 7 weeks from April until June. The only way to get a better view of the Grand Canyon is to embed yourself inside for an entire year. Otherwise, just watch this five minute video to see how amazing it really is. [Vimeo via The Awesomer]


    i don't know if it's just me but I can't take anything seriously that uses papyrus as a font.. Why someone who creates such a beautiful timelapse chooses to use such a seriously hideous & abused font is beyond me. Could be the 12+ years of graphic art talking....

      Agreed, but at least it wasn't Comic Sans.

    mmm, ive seen better of those. that moving into the gap between the rocks early on was kinda tacky.

    I had exactly the same thought about the papyrus font. It was a spectacular clip though. I'm always amazed by people who can shoot and compile such incredible videos.

    Loved the Space (night sky) shots and overall nice video

    Love this, can't believe most of you are caught up on a font used that is seen for less than 20 seconds. But I guess each to their own when it comes to what's important.

    I was going to watch this, then I saw papyrus.

      ***took a arrow to the knee
      Or is that dead already? Haha

    It's a very spectacular video. But the Grand Canyon is something that needs to be seen to be believed

    I would make a pretty good hydro scheme if the dammed it.
