Photographer Lars Leber captured this breathtaking footage captured from a vantage point above the clouds near Colorado Springs. By speeding up their movements using via time-lapse, the puffy white clouds look like the undulating waves of a surreal sky ocean.
This Steamboat Springs based outfit has been handcrafting skis for over 100 years. Built using layers of fiberglass, Kevlar, carbon fiber, and wood, with full-edge sidecuts, they’re ideal for fast, smooth, and stable carved-turn skiing.
It starts out as beautifully as most time-lapse nature footage does, but a couple of minutes in to Matt Johnson’s imagery of majestic Colorado, the fury of forest fires engulfs part of his frame. It’s at once both mesmerizing and haunting.
