If daily minutiae are preventing you from taking a vision quest through the desert, Arizona photographer Dustin Farrell can give you the next best thing. A year after releasing his awe-inspiring "Landscapes Vol. 1" video, Farrell has followed up with the mind-blowing "Landscapes Vol. 2," filmed at various locations in Arizona and Utah.


Check it out below (ideally in HD, full-screen mode with sound):



Farrell shot this with a Canon 5D2 DSLR camera, he explains on his Vimeo page, and every frame is a raw still image strung together using Adobe software. He also teases that it's "the second of a three part series (probably)," raising hopes that we haven't seen the last of his time-lapse wizardry.
