Views: ‘Wild Side Ranch’ – Santa Fe, New Mexico

Wild Side Ranch gets its name for its 14,538± total acres of dramatic cliffs and canyons with a rolling landscape marked by thick stands of ponderosa pines, juniper and pinons, numerous canyons, rock outcroppings, cliff faces, arroyos, drainages, and all interspersed by meadows of native grasses.

The primary feature of the property is the stunning and iconic landmark, Cañon Blanco, serving as the southern boundary.

Timelapse Travel: ‘Lone Peaks’ Of South America

Filmed and Edited by: Florian Nick

From giant icecaps far south to bone-dry deserts further north – I traveled 20.000 km across Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru for six months and was blown away by the variety of landscapes on this continent.

But one thing I found that all these climate zones have in common are those massive mountains rising high above their lands. May it be the majestic granite walls of Patagonia, perfectly shaped volcanos in the Atacama desert or some of the high alpine peaks of the Peruvian highlands.

Even though it only captures very few of them, this short timelapse film is a tribute to all those lone peaks in South America. There is still so many more to discover and photograph.
