Jason Kopelman shot this time-lapse video showing some of the Sherwood Forest setup and the arrival of thousands of campers at the 2012 Electric Forest Festival. Be sure to view this in Full Screen HD quality. Also, Jason shot a second video that includes a video panorama from inside the Reincarnation Station, and an overhead [...]
This is my favorite time-lapse video from Electric Forest 2012. Calder Wilson really captured the way the light moved about the forest, and especially how the colors of the Cathedral Windows reacted to the color-changing lights.

The visitor center on the toll plaza side is being completely renovated in preparation for this year’s 75th anniversary celebration, so the area was littered with chain link fencing, construction equipment, and torn up sidewalks.
