In this superb time lapse video, Dominic Boudreault presents five urban cities -- Montreal, Quebec City, Chicago, Toronto, and New York City -- and what he calls the "the duality between city and nature."
Most fascinating is the high vantage point from which much of the footage was shot: watch the colorful lights adorning the Empire State Building, and just a minute later, cars shooting down the freeway next to Lake Michigan in snowy Chicago. The City Limits was shot in late 2010, early 2011.
