Yellowstone's Moonlighting Video Will Have You in Awe

Yellowstone is simply magical according to a video that shows the national park lit by the moonlight.

The video (h/t Digg) was taken and uploaded to Vimeo by Christopher Cauble, who was able to capture stunning images with the scantest of light.

While we have all seen pictures and video of geyser shows and large swaths of landscapes, we are rarely afforded this kind of cinematic showing.

There is hardly a more beautiful sight that will also have you considering if there are any local werewolves meandering about in the distance, also enjoying the sights and sounds of this versatile land.

Now this moody video is a brief jaunt through a gorgeous national park for we Internet denizens, but it was a tremendous effort for Cauble, who explained the process on Vimeo.

Cauble stated, “This project is a result of several years capturing time-lapse under the moonlit landscape in Yellowstone National Park.”

Cauble continued, and stated he was something of a resident for a spell: “I spent many nights alone in the wilderness capturing these images. Although unnerving at times, the experience was incredibly profound and one could even say life changing.”

Seeing just a modicum of what Cauble experienced and enjoying the effort, we understand what he means. We can only imagine the scope of the images that didn’t make the cut, or didn’t exactly translate to video.

And when it comes to wildlife, “Yellowstone is an extreme and dynamic environment; at times I could be watching a geyser erupt under a full moon, and at the same time listening to the unmistakable howl of a nearby wolf,” he said.

And that, my friends, is why we will enjoy a full moon’s complement of light from the comfort of our computer chair.
