Photographer Leif Erik Smith captured tens of thousands of images over three years to make a breathtaking time-lapse video, Vista.

Vista showcases the natural beauty of Oregon, California, the Canadian Rockies, and the Himalayas. Leif puts a strong emphasis on excellent light and vibrant colors, which helps make each individual frame from his time-lapse video an excellent standalone image.

When making Vista, Smith used a Canon 5D Mark III, a Nikon D600, an Emotimo TB3 pan/tilt head, and a Dynamic Perception Stage Zero rail.

Check out the awesome video below and be sure to watch it in full HD!
