The park is known for its vast lakes, abundant wildlife, and old geology. This Explore video, a relatively new release from National Geographic, offers a time-lapse look of this park – especially the skies.
One of my friends describes Italy as “one long museum.” The country offers so much that it is actually very hard to describe. Then again, being that my heritage is all Italian and with 4 first cousins and an aunt there, I admit being a bit biased. Enjoy with time-lapse of various parts of this beautiful country.

I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term–meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching–there would be a vast improvement in total output.
