Watch Bruce W. Berry's Jaw-Dropping 'Time-Lapse | Earth'

We love it when enthusiast and professional photographers push the capabilities of modern DSLRs, merging traditional still photography with high-definition filmmaking to create astonishing time-lapse films (like The Mountain). Self-taught Philadelphia photographer, Bruce Wayne Berry, may have topped them all with his latest work, 'Time-Lapse | Earth'.

Mr Berry took videos and stills captured by Astronauts living up in the International Space Station (ISS), which orbits Earth every 90 minutes, then "color graded, denoised, deflickerd, slowed down, and stabilized" all the footage to create one of the most impressive time-lapse films we've ever seen. Words simply don't capture the beauty and scale on display here:

A Footage Note from Mr. Berry's Vimeo page:  The slower video represents a closer resemblance to the true speed of the International Space Station; this footage was shot at one frame per second. Clips are all marked with an *.
