Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Plains Milky Way

Time once again for our usual midday Wednesday feature.

For the month of May, photographer Randy Halverson shot Milky Way timelapse in central South Dakota, when he had the time, and the weather cooperated. The biggest challenge was cloudy nights and the wind. There were very few nights, when he could shoot, that were perfectly clear, and often the wind was blowing over 25mph. That made it hard to get the shots he wanted. He kept most of the shots low to the ground, so the wind wouldn't catch the setup and cause camera shake, or blow it over.

Ten seconds of the video is about 2 hours 20 minutes in real time.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

(Psalm 19:1)

(H/T to Ricky Vines.)
