Desert & Glass is a timelapse through eastern Oregon's high desert. Though this landscape lacks the huge cacti and large rock spires of the Southwest, it shares the same sheer vastness. Filmmaker Tyler Hulett hauled six mirrors through the Painted Hills outside of Mitchell to create the perspectives shown in this incredible film.
