Viral Vimeo Video Shows Breathtaking Time-Lapse of San Francisco Bay Area

Gary Yost may not be living a glamorous life as a fire department volunteer lookout in Marin County, California, but the view from his workplace is something that will make nature-lovers green with envy.

In this viral video released on Vimeo, he used time-lapse techniques and the view from his workplace on top of Mount Tamalpais to create this stunning and compelling video of a day in “the (usually) very peaceful life” of a fire department volunteer.

He said in the description: “Perhaps this 6-minute video will convey some of the emotions I feel when sitting (and sleeping) on her peak.” The more than 91,900 people who saw this video are likely amazed at how Yost captured the San Francisco Bay Area at its finest.
