On Sunday morning, Brittany, Mike, Brandon and I woke up around 3:30am and made a trip out to the Salt Flats to see the sunrise. This might seem like a sort of random trip, but we were inspired by our Visual Communications class which focuses on extraordinary experiences in the natural or built environment. We decided to go out just for fun and it was totally worth it! Wow. What an incredible view. We both took our cameras while Brandon and Mike cuddled under a blanket in the back of the xterra...okay, okay, fine, they didn't cuddle. It was a funny visual though wasn't it? Teehee.
Here's a video of the pictures we took. It's difficult to capture how beautiful and magical it was. For all of you who are photographers, it was so difficult to keep an accurate shutter speed to keep up with the constantly changing light! Grrr. The salt flats already make you feel like you're on the edge of the earth or on a different planet completely, but with the sunrise and the transition from no light to intense light, it is so breathtaking. Everything seemed to move so slowly, but when the sun came out, everything moved so quickly. Brittany and I decided to start something with this whole experience and travel to different places to experience the sunrise and document it with pictures. I can't wait! The video is about ten minutes long and is slow moving. It's really meant to be enjoyed in a relaxed state, so put the kids to bed, get a drink or whatever you need to do, turn up the sound, (pause the playlist music on the right) sit back, relax and enjoy :)
