Thursday Salute to Originals: Nature’s Range of Light

Words cannot do justice to this astounding video of light crawling over stone surfaces in an ever-changing symphony of texture, color, light, and movement. Created by visual artist Shawn Reeder using timelapse photography, the video piece showcases the range of lighting conditions at Yosemite National Park in California.  While it’s easy to be swept away in the beautiful images, be sure to ponder why our built environment lacks such variety.
