Two very different time-lapse treks within nature

(CBS News) Yesterday we went for an urban journey through the vibrant Spanish city of Barcelona. Today we go rural with two very different time-lapse treks through nature, starting with the video above that captures the world's largest dormant volcano: Haleakala. Take a quick peek.

The wondrous perspective of the Hawaiian volcano is entitled "House of the Sun" and was posted on Vimeo by Dan Douglas who writes about the background on it:

On a recent trip to Maui, I had the opportunity to visit the world's largest dormant volcano - Haleakala. The size of this volcano is massive - Manhattan could fit inside. I'm still in shock at how awesome this place is. Arriving before sunrise, I placed a few cameras out in hopes to capture what people refer to as, "The most beautiful sunrise in the world."
People gather from around the globe to witness this kaleidoscope of shifting colors - known as the "House of the Sun". My hope is to give you a small glimpse of the energy, excitement and elegance this natural marvel brings.

Mission beyond accomplished, Dan! And the clouds flowing across the volcano reminds me of another recently featured time-lapse focused on the city of San Francisco, which I'll be traveling to soon. And my mention of this upcoming trip led a fan of The Feed to submit his own nearby the city time-lapse work to us. Click play to take in the woodland wonder of "Redwood" below from Steven Poe. And thank you so much for submitting this fantastic piece to us, Steven!
