Established in 1885 in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and about 1 1/2 hours drive west of Calgary, Alberta, Banff National Park is Canada’s oldest national park. Today, it consists of 6,641 square kilometers of unparalleled scenery, welcoming millions of visitors each year.
One of them was Spanish photographer Enrique Pacheco, who started specializing in time-lapse when he moved to Iceland. Currently, Pacheco creates 4K movies and stock footage from all around the world, something he calls “every filmmaker’s dream.”
Back in May, Pacheco ended up in Canada, capturing footage that would be paired with music by Nánási Péter to produce a breathtaking time-lapse of this amazing wildland. The image maker calls the Banff National Park “one of those places where you can truly experience the strong connection between man and nature” and exploring it was “a life changing experience.”
“It’s difficult not to be fully aware of your existence when you are walking through the Rocky Mountains of Canada.”
