A collection of timelapses I shot and edited while on Rapa Nui, or Easter Island. 

In 2014, I traveled to Palau and swam in Jellyfish Lake, a secluded body of saline water that holds 9 million jellyfish! After millions of years of isolation from predators, they evolved and lost their stinging cells (nematocysts). They survive using photosynthesis (like a plant), which explains their orange coloration which houses a symbiotic algae. 

This is the first video I ever edited. Filmed by: US NPS Submerged Resources Center, and myself.
