Ring in the weekend with this killer compilation of timelapse footage of the Pacific Northwest. Photographer John Eklund captured these scenes at some of the region's most magnificent locales, including Crater Lake, Mt. Mount St. Helens, Oregon's Badlands and Painted Hills, to name a few.

Writes Eklund:

I choose to shoot locations that appeal to the way I would like to interpret the story of time. Here in the Pacific Northwest, there are endless opportunities to document the magnificence of the world around us. I have discovered that when time is the storyteller, a special kind of truth emerges.

Absolutely incredible. Beautiful doesn't begin to describe it.
