City Rising

This is a collection of timelapses created by Tom Ryaboi.  You would be forgiven for thinking that he had been doing this for quite some time but he only started doing this a year ago.  With City Rising he wanted to bring others up to his perspective, and from here, show them the city as they have never seen it before — where the boundary between earth and sky is unclear and the placid beauty of the city lays spread out below, quietly humming along.

City Rising takes the viewer straight through rush hour traffic to the highest urban peaks and the clouds above it all, all in under four minutes. It is some of the most astonishing footage that you will see this year.
