After two years of shooting, thousands of miles of driving, tens of hours editing, and countless miles hiked, cliffs scaled, and rivers forded I have finally finished the time-lapse video you all have been seeing me post frames of for the past few years. All footage was shot in National Parks and includes shots from Grand Teton,Glacier, Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain, Bryce Canyon, and Shenandoah National Park. #nationalpark   #GlacierNationalPark   #BryceCanyon   #Shenandoah   #grandteton  #milkyway

Here is another frame of the time-lapse video I am working on.  This is from Shenandoah National Park overlooking the small town of Stanley VA

This is a prototype of a nuclear canon...you heard me right a NUCLEAR CANON. The idea was that you could fire a nuclear warhead several miles and wipe out an advancing force with a single shot. Thank God these were never used.

In honor of Earth Day I'm posting a picture of one of my favorite places on Earth, Glacier National Park.  In 1850 there were 150 glaciers in Glacier NP.  Today there are only 26 and it is predicted that by 2030 they will all be gone.  This is the only planet we (currently) have.  We should protect it. #noplacelikehome   #earthday2015   #nature   #glacier   #glacierNP   #nationalpark

I'm working on producing a professional quality compilation of all the time-lapse photography I have done at the National Parks over the past few years. It is looking pretty epic.

This FW-190 was flown by the famous Nazi fighter ace Rudi Linz who claimed to have shot down 70 allied aircraft. While defending some german ships against allied aircraft he was shot down and killed in February of 1945. His plane is currently being restored and will one day fly again!
