The Unique Beauty of Joshua Tree Captured Through Timelapse Photography

The Joshua tree (Yucca brevifolia) is an iconic species–found only in the southwestern United States–which embodies the beauty of the desert. Sung Jin Ahn‘s award-winning timelapse video pays tribute to the trees, depicting their splendor in a variety of desert scenes:

After reading that the Joshua tree may be endangered by climate change, and that it might even be eliminated from the national park that bears its name, Ahn was inspired to capture the trees’ beauty in their current natural habitat.

Shooting at Joshua Tree over the course of a year with a Canon 5D Mark III, Ahn created a breathtaking film that immortalizes the trees, despite what their future may hold.

No additional words or information is needed in the video– the trees and the desert speak for themselves.
