Watch the Seasons Change From the Air in This Gorgeous Video

Call me crazy, but one nice thing about the Midwest is seeing all the seasons, even if that sometimes happens all in one week. However, filming this beautiful montage of the evolving seasons took not a week, but two years, but the result is well worth it. Take a minute to check it out.

Created by Will Strathmann, "TYCA Farm Seasonal Time-lapse From a Drone" was begun in spring 2015 and completed in January of this year. Filmed on a farm in Newtown Township, Pennsylvania and showing off the Springton Reservoir, the video feels almost magical as the colors and foliage change in mid-flight. Strathmann notes that pulling off the montage meant flying as precise a path as possible multiple times over the course of two years, with a bit of cropping and moving in post to align them more precisely. It's an impressive technical achievement, especially since it's not easy to fly the same path twice in five minutes let alone multiple times across many months. Nevertheless, the results were well worth the trouble, creating a rather unique and entrancing video. Be sure to check out Strathmann's website and Instagram for more of his work!

Beautiful! I have a hard enough time lining up multiple photos to composite let alone drone flights over months - that's quite amazing
