Ghost Of Death Valley is a stunning time-lapse video of the night sky above the Nevada dessert, a project created by JJ Dreier and Django Greenblatt-Seay, the duo of photographers behind Tree Speed Photo.  After a week of sleepless nights, they managed to capture an epic motion time-lapse of the skies above Rhyolite, a gold rush-era ghost town located near the edge of Death Valley.

The beautiful time-lapse was shot from inside abandoned cars, trains and buildings, the camera occasionally turning on their own motion gear to add a special meta touch.

The two photographers used a lot of equipment of which we mention a Stage Zero Dolly System, two Canon 5D MKIII’s, two Canon 6Ds, a Nikon D600, a Celestron SkyWatcher pan/tilt head and a slew of wide-angle and fisheye Rokinon, Tokina and Tamron lenses.

Django Greenblatt-Seay explains some of the challenges of working on a project like this “I think the process for making trips like these, focused exclusively on getting as many good shots as possible is pretty interesting.” Greenblatt-Seay continues “You have to find a way to flip your sleep schedule – 5-Hour Energy/Red Bull – and you have to be very organized with data management and battery cycling.”

The result of their work makes all the effort worthwhile, Ghosts of Death Valley video is stunningly beautiful and watching it makes you want to spend a night under the stars. Check it out.
