It was one hell of a journey during the fourteen months making Wyoming Wildscapes II, my second and final Wyoming related time lapse project. Had plenty of adventures while working on this. Lightning almost got me a couple of times this summer, gear froze up in the winter (literally), and broke a few times (don’t think most of the time lapse gear was meant for extended wilderness backpacking), all that fun stuff. Despite any minor set backs, this was without a doubt one of the most fulfilling personal projects I’ve ever undertaken. Saw some pretty amazing stuff along the way, this part of the country never ceases to amaze and surprise me.

Thanks for watching!
Ghost Kollective did an absolutely amazing job on the custom track. I’ve enabled the tip jar and any tips given will be sent to Ghost K (through my lightalivephotography paypal) for creating this track without seeking payment. Or you can cut out the middle man, do one better, and buy some of their music! itunes.apple.com
Some long winded stuff here for anyone interested in reading more about Wyoming Wildscapes II, including a bit about licensing.
At the far right propaganda site that Andrew Breitbart spawned, Ben “Friends of Hamas” Shapiro shares his special take on President Obama’s planned trip to South Africa: AFTER SNUBBING THATCHER FUNERAL, OBAMA AND MICHELLE TO VISIT SOUTH AFRICA FOR MANDELA!!!
I’ve lost track of how many times the Breitbrats have used this photo for their hit pieces; for some reason it really appeals to them:
Hilariously, Shapiro’s predictable slant that Obama “snubbed” Margaret Thatcher’s funeral is undercut by his own article:
The Sun reported, “[Downing] Street is most angered by rejections from Obama, First Lady Michelle and Vice-President Joe Biden. And none of the four surviving ex-US leaders - Jimmy Carter, George Bush Sr., Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr. - is coming either.”
Oh, you mean none of the last five presidents went to Thatcher’s funeral? But of course, it was Obama who SNUBBED, because he’s “arrogant.” You can tell from the photo. Is that an arrogant face or what?
Meanwhile, in the comment section, the right wing base is making things very clear again, in case you were tempted to believe they had some sort of respect for Nelson Mandela’s achievements:
Well Mandela was a communist afterall.
…as a fellow african the president needs to mourn with his people…
you’re right about him having to be with HIS people.He’ll always be more part of them than American anyway. he should stay there.
The whites there have to have an inordinate amount of security around their houses. When blacks do manage to get in, they now torture their victims for days before killing them. The black police usually do nothing. They have been known to wrap babies in newspaper and set them on fire, or drop them in boiling water.
I don’t see this making the news. Thank God they have an evacuation plan.
They are just as sick here…it must be in their DNA…
And Mandela became a “good” communist yesterday.
Maybe we’ll get lucky and their plane will fall out of the sky.
This is seriously the reason this ass has not been assassinated, nobody wants this guy to be martyred, I actually think the KKK would prevent any attempts on his life. Our luck will be the typical liberal assassin does it.
Seriously—we’re gonna say it cause we know everyone is thinking it—the reason they snubbed Thatcher is because she was conservative and white while Mandela was a communist and black (like BHO)
Isn’t this special?
White World leaders don’t receive any recognition from this administration.
How racist is that?
Oh well, I guess it’s just another example of affirmative action.
Lady Thatcher was a white European. Mr. Mandela was a REAL African. Is there any question which type of person Barry like more?
Mandala was a corrupt and amoral black racist.
THIS ARTICLE ALONE puts the LIE to the PR CLAIMING MANDELA an altruist instead of a communist genocidal freak who successfully shed his own reputation off onto Winnie, while ignoring all his own ACTIONS.
WHEN has the WORLD MEDIA so highly praised and EX-COMMUNIST, much less OBAMA.
As usual, when most of a Dictator’s GENOCIDAL VICTIMS are CHRISTIANS, whether Black or whatever - in this case as with Obama’s forefathers, PRIMARILY BLACK - it is highly irrelevant - like with CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood, Syrian Al Qaeda cannibals…
And not a word from the MSM about “necklacing” torture… or machete hackings. Sorry Liberals but your Mandela is not your grand parent’s MLK.
Obama should just stay over there and find him a little African country to run.
Where was Obama, blowing dogs at the bath houses?
It’s no big deal. Just another dead communist.
Let this LIAR and fat so muchella STAY THERE…………..
Would be the perfect time for the first cow to get that saucer fitted for that lip.
Moochelle can be fitted for a lot of neck rings. It will help keep her nose in the air because she has such a big head
I agree that the saucer and rings would make her culturally compliant along with her other offensive attributes.
The Obamas…back to their roots…the jungles & trees of Africa.
If they don’t want o be associated with jungles and trees then they shouldn’t claim t be “African” Americans.
That’s just from the first few pages of comments, and this stuff is by no means unique to Breitbart.com; you’ll find similar deranged rants and overt racism at nearly every right wing website today.
(But remember, there’s no such thing as right wing racism.)
I mentioned in a comment to LGF Reader Randall Gross’ page on the religious right and Nelson Mandela that the late Jerry Falwell stuck his foot in his mouth big time back in 1985 when he urged Congress to block sanctions against the Apartheid regime and called Bishop Desmond Tutu a “phoney.” I couldn’t find video of his comments, but this story from the Los Angeles Times archives sums up what happened very well.
Both Falwell and [Richard] Viguerie—who estimated that their lobbying drives could cost more than $1 million each—asserted that restricting U.S. economic ties to Pretoria would only backfire, hurting black workers most while destabilizing the South African government.
“We see it as a fight between communism and freedom,” Viguerie said in an interview. “The idea that this (sanctions) is about ending segregation is nonsense.”
Meanwhile, Falwell contended that Tutu, a black Anglican bishop at the center of the current South African campaign against apartheid, has been rejected as a spokesman by most blacks. Tutu—who won the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize for his nonviolent opposition to apartheid and white rule—has warned that a continuation of apartheid will lead to escalating violence.
“If Bishop Tutu maintains that he speaks for the black people of South Africa, he is a phony,” Falwell declared. He said that blacks he met during his trip urged more, rather than less, American economic involvement in their country.
Falwell and Jesse Jackson debated apartheid on Nightline on September 4, 1985.
South African President Jacob Zuma announced today that Nelson Mandela passed away at the age of 95. A life well lived, and an inspiration that will never die.
I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Mandela, when the Al Jarreau Band played in South Africa in 1993. He was totally down to earth; joked about sneaking into the concert, and made a point of personally meeting everyone in the band. A great experience of a great man who will be remembered throughout history.
Giant birds totally freaking out about a battery-powered ball with a weasel tail — what’s not to love?
This woman is pure evil.
Pamela Geller is telling her fellow anti-Muslim activists to convince Congress to reject a resolution “urging the Government of Burma to end the persecution of the Rohingya people and respect internationally recognized human rights for all ethnic and religious minority groups within Burma.”
The Rohingya minority have faced vicious persecution in Burma, but Geller accuses them of “waging jihad in Burma.”
Various human rights groups and media outlets, along with groups from the Heritage Foundation to the Brookings Institute, have described the persecution of the Rohingya in Burma as ethnic cleansing.
But not Geller.
She claims that the Rohingya are to blame for the atrocities against them because of a bombing at a Buddhist shrine in India by the Islamic extremist Indian Mujahideen, and is demanding activists stop the resolution from turning into a “battering ram to impose Islam on small, defenseless countries.”
Anytime Buddhist monks have to carry guns for self-defense, it’s a good bet that the Religion of Peace is involved.
Muslims are waging jihad in Burma. But the Buddhists aren’t having it. Muslim Brotherhood groups in the US are agitating for UN intervention. Scroll and read Hamas-CAIR’s call for support of US resolution 418 calling for intervention. Please contact your Congressmen and Senators and tell them to VOTE NO on resolution 418. We have seen this before. It led to President Clinton sending US troops to fight for the Bosnian Muslims against the Christian Serbs, leading to the establishment of the first Islamic state in Europe (Kosovo).
Support the Buddhists in Burma. Seriously. Do this. I am in Boston, as our free speech lawsuit is being heard today, but I will be working the phones, and so should you. Burma is 90% Buddhist. These are a peaceful people. The Muslims have brought war to Burma. Bodh Gaya, the holiest site for the Buddhists the world over, was bombed in a series of Islamic terror attacks. Hamas-CAIR must be stopped from using the most powerful government in the world as its battering ram to impose Islam on small, defenseless countries.
