Another spectacularly calming and meditative short by Henry Jun Wah Lee on winter in Yosemite National Park.
Shot over the 2011 New Year weekend when a winter storm arrived in Yosemite. Overcast skies the first day, followed by heavy snow on the second day, partly cloudy the third day and sunny the fourth day. You’ll see a mixture of shots from the different weather conditions.
This timelapse showreel is a collection of some of the best Nature moments that Henry Jun Wah Lee captured from 2009 to present.
I grew up in the city — a world constructed of steel, concrete and asphalt. My view of the night sky was the moon and the handful of stars bright enough to outshine the glow of city lights.
My understanding of nature was limited to what I could find at local gardens, parks and zoos. As a kid I never saw the Milky Way with my own eyes. Just on sci-fi television and in books and magazines. My encounters with wild animals were limited to squirrels and pigeons in the city (if those even count as wild).
In 2009, I set out to film nature to share with urban dwellers who, like me, have never ventured outside the routines and comforts of cities. It’s now been two years, many amazing trips, and countless incredible experiences. This film is a compilation of the many highlights captured during this time.
