Are you ready to watch as the awesome presence of giant satellite dishes seem to come to life, setting the scene for the desert as it transforms from day to night and back again?
You will find yourself travelling across Arizona and New Mexico, hovering above mountains which provide an inspirational backdrop and a skyline of breath-taking proportions.
Watch as the sky achieves mystical proportions and spot fires rage in the background. Whilst shadows beckon and command attention, the mountains’ demanding presence dominates the scene. Catch glimpses of the wildlife as it scatters randomly whilst your attention is caught off-guard by lone cacti stretching their arms up towards the dome of the sky.
Catch a hint of the composer’s passion for this depth-charged scenery as he makes his journey across South-West America, travelling across spellbinding panoramas that bring with them drama, magic and sights that are intoxicating:
We have travelled 3 weeks through the south-western US in May / June 2014. Then we spent a week in Hawaii. 5964 km through a fabulous, hospitable country with such many fascinating landscapes in the states Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada. In many places on this trip I took the fascination of starry sky.
The video was made at the following locations:

- Canyon de Chelly, Arizona
- Kayenta, Arizona
- Monument Valley, Arizona / Utah
- Arches National Park, Utah

Never before have you seen scenery as heavenly or as formidable; here we are allowed to catch a glimpse of the highs and lows of the desert, unshrouded from its mystery and revealed as never seen before.
