Platte Basin Timelapse

Michael Forsberg, is using the power of photography and storytelling to show the Platte River Basin in motion. The Platte Basin Timelapse project follows the Platte River Basin through the lenses of 40+ time-lapse camera systems placed along the 900 miles starting with the Platte River's headwaters, through the Continental Divide in the Colorado Rockies to the river's confluence with the Missouri River on Nebraska's eastern border.
