Trails End: Incredible New Time-lapse from Randy Halverson

by Hugh Brownstone1 Comment

In this installment of “Placing Humanity in Context” we bring you TRAILS END, a compilation of time lapses by Randy Halverson shot in Wyoming, Utah and South Dakota.

Why waste your time on my words when you can simply watch Randy’s stunning work?

Get thee to it (though I will point out that especially magnificent are the lightning beginning at 1:19; the wide vista beginning at 3:04; and the delightful introduction of audio at 3:30).

Trails End – 4K Ultra HD


Trails End is a compilation of some of my favorite timelapse shots from 2014, with a few Aurora shots from early this year. On many of the locations, I used my Palomino SS-1251 truck camper from Cheyenne Camper Center, often ending up near the end of some remote trail. It was shot in Wyoming, Utah and South Dakota. You can see the rest of the 100+ full length sequences, on the 30+ minute “Trails End” feature, which you can download here or the link below. Available in 4K UHD, up to 4096 X 2304, for licensing. 2015 Badlands Night Sky Workshop schedule

Cheyenne Camping Center – They gave me a great deal on a Palomino Palomino SS-1251 camper which worked great, they also have a great service department.

Dynamic Perception – The Stage Zero and Stage One dollies were used in many of the shots. I can’t recommend them enough for a quality product at a low price.

eMotimo – Great pan and tilt motion control. This will also mount on the Dynamic Perception Dollies. See more about the eMotimo TB3’s on my website.

  1. Beautiful work — I wish the render were sharper though. There is one shot that tilts up from a gnarly old tree to the night sky that is my fav — tho theyre ALL great.
