Freshman Josh Sheldon spent the night at the Grand Canyon, shooting an absolutely breathtaking timelapse. And by spent the night, we meant camped on the ledge. Of the Grand Canyon. As Josh says on his blog, Do Things, "Considering that [the Grand Canyon] probably would have a very low light pollution level, I imaged that it would be even better at night, under the stars. And so, I decided to take the opportunity to spend the night on the rim of the Grand Canyon to take a timelapse depicting the full movement of the stars from sunset to sunrise." Below the video are photos that help explain how he managed to get this footage. For the full story, visit Josh's blog at http://dothings.weebly.com/.
These are photos taken by Andrew Roberts of the most recent GEOG 328B: Geography of the Southern Caribbean course. This took 25 Terps to the Caribbean on one of the world's largest clipper ships to study the region's geography and its impact on the culture, lifestyle, tourism and local economies. Students also studied the history of the region and how its geographical properties influenced its inhabitants & visitors. The course is taught by Joe Trocino. Thanks, Andrew!
