It’s been a pretty crappy week. As a bit of a break, a breather, here is a magnificent time-lapse video of Yosemite Park, created by photographer Tony Rowell. This will hopefully serve as a reminder that there is still beauty, wonder, and magnificence in the world.

Just to let you know: That rainbow at the base of Yosemite Falls at the beginning of the video was not due to the Sun. That part was taken at night, and the source of light was the Moon.
See? Even when it seems that darkness surrounds us, there are still things over which we can be awestruck.
