Start your week with this spellbinding timelapse of Yosemite National Park

Nursing a wicked case of the Mondays? Snap out of it with this breathtaking timelapse of Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada mountain range.


Filmed over the course of almost two years by cinematographer Shawn Reeder, Yosemite Range of Light captures the park and its adjoining mountain ranges in absolutely exquisite detail. This is a full-screen, HD affair if at all possible, people. This is genuinely captivating stuff.

"Yosemite National Park, the High Sierra, and the Eastern Sierra are some of the most beautiful places on earth," explains Reeder. "Ever since I serendipitously won a trip to Yosemite when I was 18, the beautiful Range of Light has captured my heart and become my home. Nothing brings me more joy than to share this life changing beauty with others." [Shawn Reeder via Explore]
