LAKE SUPERIOR, Mich. — A recent time-lapse video that was shot entirely in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan — except for some scenes from space — is dropping jaws around the state and beyond.

Created by Shawn Malone of Lake Superior Photo, the video is set to the music of electronic recording artist David Helpling.  In the video description on YouTube, the studio details how it was created:

“Created with Canon DSLR’s and various lenses of many makes and models, a Dynamic Perception Stage One/MX3 system and premiere pro for motion, this project took many weeks of shooting and editing to complete. Most of the scenes were shot in 2014, including scenes from the record cold winter on icy Lake Superior, to a late September 2014 auroral substorm from Isle Royale National Park, Michigan.

Pure Michigan also featured the video in a recent blog post and included a detailed description of how the project came together.
