Platte Basin Timelapse

The Platte River is a major watershed in the heart of the Great Plains. It waters crops and cattle, hosts resident and migrant wildlife, supplies thirsty cities, fuels power generators, and delights fishermen and boaters. Since 2011 60 time-lapse camera systems placed throughout the 90,000 square mile basin follow the water that makes a nearly 900 mile journey through the heart of North America. Project co-founder Farrell shares stories of the project through an evolving set of timelapse videos as well as photographs and edited videos.
