Located at the corner of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, Yellowstone, America's first National Park, sits on one of the most powerful supervolcanoes on the planet. Yellowstone Caldera last erupted approximately 64 million years ago, sending pyroclastic flows across hundreds of miles in diameter, and covering most of North America with a thick layer of ash. Carried by weather, ash and other particles covered the globe, causing a year-long blackout, and resulting in a devastating nuclear winter.
Today, Yellowstone provides the visitors a spectacle of geothermal features and prismatic colors as pressure underneath builds to eventual geyser explosions across the basin. This breathtaking volcanic ritual serves as reminder that some of the most beautiful parts of nature and often the most dangerous.
Dedicated to Colin Nathaniel Scott who died at Yellowstone just days after this video was made.
This video was filmed as part of SKYGLOW (skyglowproject.com), an ongoing crowdfunded quest to explore the effects and dangers of urban light pollution in contrast with some of the most incredible dark sky areas in North America. This project is being produced in collaboration with International Dark-Sky Association (darksky.org), a non-profit fighting for the preservation of night skies around the globe.
The film was shot on Canon 5DSR & 5DIII cameras & lenses sponsored by Canon USA, aided by Alpine Labs' Michron, powered by Paul C. Buff Vagabond Mini. LRTimelapse was used to process some of the shots.
