Nearly 400 thousand people have watched the stunning Yosemite HD video that Project Yosemite uploaded on Vimeo Friday.

Project Yosemite is a collaborative project by Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty that evolved into an ongoing adventure to time-lapse Yosemite in an extreme way.

Indeed, it's sufficed to say you've never seen Yosemite like this before.

Neill and Delehanty were complete strangers before meeting on Vimeo to pursue the ambitious project to capture the beauty Yosemite and witness the iconic California park in new ways.

Yosemite spans 761,268 acres and has a varied landscape of forests, mountains, and rivers. Yosemite HD showcases 40 different locations throughout the park and though 3.7 million people visit Yosemite annually, just three of the video's locations feature the presence of humans.

Delehanty calls himself an adventure photographer on his Web site and says he's based in the San Francisco Bay area. Neill is based in San Juan Capistrano in Southern California and is a self-proclaimed tech guru with a new-found addiction to travel photography.

The pair used a Canon 5D Mark II with a variety of Canon L and Zeiss CP.2 lenses and a Dynamic Perception motion-controlled dolly to capture the images. The video is set to Outro from the new album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming by M83.

According to Neill and Delehanty, there is a sequel in the works, so stay tuned. Until then, here's a look at Yosemite HD:
