The Unseen Sea: San Francisco Natural Beauty in HD

The San Francisco Bay Area hardly needs any dressing up. Its natural beauty speaks for itself. But this short HD film by Simon Christen, a professional animator and aspiring photographer, certainly gives artistic expression to the alluring landscape of this coastal region. Clouds take on the appearance of waves, and lights look like lava, as the collection of time lapses roll by. The film (which you can catch in a striking large format here) comes to us via @AndrewHazlett. Nick Cave provides the accompanying music – “Mary’s Song” from the soundtrack of Assassination of Jesse James.
