In this fast-paced world, most people want time to slow down. However, Randy Halverson of Kennebec, SD, specializes in speeding up time, thanks to his time-lapse photography skills. Time-lapse photography works the same way as a video camera, except it’s long exposure on a camera. The photos are compiled into video format.

Halverson, a full-time farmer and member of West Central Electric Cooperative in Murdo, SD, often can be found in his fields, not only to plant and harvest crops, but also to capture nature’s beauty. His work has attracted attention from around the world.
