♪♫ 'Rapture' in the Southwest

This timelapse video and its accompanying musical score are as overly dramatic as its name, "Rapture." But it totally and completely works. Sit back, set your speakers on high, put the video on large screen and prepare for awesome.

Photographer Tom Lowe has created a moving portrait of American Southwest for his film "TimeScapes." "Rapture" is just a short preview of the film. If the rest of it looks as rich and awe-inspiring as this does, it will be like the "Planet Earth" series on crack.

(Thanks to Phil Plait!)
