    by on 02-28-2012 at 09:00 AM (Sierra Blogging Post)
    Outdoor high-definition time-lapse videos are really popular right now, but I never get tired of them, mostly because they are so cool! Here's a fantastic one from photographer Randy Halverson featuring some amazing atmospheric light effects.

    "What you see is real, but you can't see it this way with the naked eye," Randy says. "It is the result of thousands of 20-30 second exposures, edited together to produce the timelapse. This allows you to see the Milky Way, Aurora

    When it comes to putting the "neat" in nature, no one does it quite like Lenny Pepperbottom and his pal Rod. If you haven't had a chance to check out this You Tube original comedy series, I highly recommend it. It's pretty neat!

    What is the neatest thing about nature, in your opinion? Share your thoughts, and we might just find a T-shirt with your name on it. Okay, it won't actually have your

    Alright, this totally takes the cake for wildest rope swing video I've ever seen, and I've seen some good ones. It was filmed over two days at Corona Arch, which is in Bootlegger Canyon just outside Moab, Utah. The crew that put it together setup five bolted anchors to ensure the rope wouldn't come loose midway through the pendulum drop, which they say is about 130 feet of free fall. The arch opening measures 140x105 feet. Don't try this at home, kids!

    I've been seeing a lot of amazing time-lapse videos over the past few months, but this is definitely one of the best I've seen so far. Not only is the location and picture quality amazing, but every shot seems perfectly staged. It's absolutely stunning work from Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty. I haven't had a chance to visit Yosemite National Park, but this really makes me want to buy a plane ticket!

    Something about shooting in time lapse makes these videos even more affecting
  5. Video: Extreme GoPro Pogo Sticking

    According to Mary Bellis of, the original metal spring pogo stick was created by a toy designer named George B. Hansburg in the early 1920s. Of course, Hansburg's old-school pogos would only hop a few inches off the ground. That's fun if you're 8 years old, but clearly kid stuff compared to what a modern Flybar or Vertego stick will do.

    If you really want to see just how "extreme" modern pogo sticking can be, check out this video from XPOGO films shot entirely with
