Treat for the eyes: Namibian Nights


Namibian Nights is created by Marsel van Oosten, who is famous for creating one of the most popular Namibian night photography portfolio on this planet. With this stellar video, Marsel has taken his talent to another magnificent level. What makes this timelapse so interesting is that it isn’t static. According to his Vimeo page,

The idea was to create a night photography timelapse video featuring his most popular subjects in this amazing country: the fairytale-like quivertrees and the eery, dead camelthorn trees in Deadvlei – something that had never been done before. But instead of going for static scenes, Marsel decided to add movement to the scenes by using a dolly system.

The twinkling movement of the stars is captivating. Enjoy Namibia’s gorgeousness!
