KENNEBEC, South Dakota — A farmer who creates time-lapse photos and videos of Western skies calls his latest project "Trails End" because of the number of times he parked his truck and camper at the end of a trail to get away from artificial lights.
Randy Halverson, of Kennebec, sells his work through his business, DakotaLapse.
The videos are comprised of still photos made with long exposures that bring out features from the sky not visible to the naked eye.
"Trails End" was shot in South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah. It includes streaks of airplanes, satellites and meteors, an owl sitting in a tree and rare effects known as sprites and gravity waves.
Halverson is also holding two workshops this summer in the Badlands for people interested in doing time-lapse photography.
