A home for the things I think are worthy of sharing. Will largely be photography based.

Time-lapse with a twist

As mentioned before – through work I do a bit of time-lapse work. I’m not really involved with the collation of the images together into the video, but instead just the technicalities of getting the images in the first place.

So I do tend to keep an eye open for timelapse videos that come along. They are starting to get mre creative now – with HDR ones and ones on dollies that gradually move very very slowly with stepper motors.

Anyway – came across this one today – bit of a twist to it (ho ho). It’s a timelapse of stars moving across the sky (milky way I think) from an observatory in Chile – but someone has re-edited it so that the stars stay still and it’s the planet that moves. Nice twist – boom tish 😉 I’m a bit curious about the crazy buildings that twist and what I guess is a laser that goes up into the sky.

Anyway – here it is, enjoy.

PS – Yes I’d love to do something like this (with the stars) but there’s no chance unless I go to somewhere distant like the Scottish Highlands.
