One of the most beautiful nature films I’ve ever seen

A full cloud inversion followed by a snowstorm over Grand Canyon National Park in this gorgeous new time-lapse.

In this video, filmmaker Harun Mehmedinovic captured a rare event at Arizona’s Grand Canyon National Park, called a cloud inversion. Harun described what’s happening in his time-lapse:

On extremely rare days, cold air trapped in the canyon and topped by a layer of warm air, in combination with moisture and condensation, form the phenomenon referred to as the full cloud inversion. In what resembles something between ocean waves and fast clouds, Grand Canyon is completely obscured by fog, making the visitors feel as if they are walking on clouds. The full inversions, which mostly take place in the late fall or early winter, are sometimes followed by huge snowstorms, as depicted here.
