Photographer Jesse Watson took this jaw-dropping timelapse of the recent December 22 nd SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base( as seen from Yuma, Arizona ).
On Vimeo, Watson explains:
I scouted four places that had foregrounds to add depth to the imagery and was uniquely inspiring to my hometown. Place choices were between a favorite local hiking mountain, the Imperial Sand Dune, or a small mound that resides in the historical downtown field overlooking the city. I purposed up choosing the location that overlooked the city, partly because it was the easiest to access with all of my time-lapse gear. I utilized The Photographera
s Ephemeris and Google Maps to assist scout and initial line up.
I objective up hitting 2452 images and culled that down to 1315 images for the final programme edited in Adobe After Result and Adobe Premiere Pro.
