Photographer Gavin Heffernan recently spent some time capturing the landscape surrounding Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks in California. Instead of focusing on just the trees and the mountains, however, Heffernan put an emphasis on the sky to create the beautiful video you see above.

Heffernan spent three days during the summer solstice capturing material for the film. Most night shots were taken with 25-second exposures on two Canon EOS 6D's using multiple wide, fast lenses.

My favorite part of the clip is the star trails which were created using a rendering program called Starstax. There's just something mesmerizing about seeing the Earth rotate in such a manner.
