This time lapse was shot over the course of one lunar cycle, during an artist's residency in the foothills of the Himalaya (Manila, Uttarakhand, India) during January and February 2014.

I shot each of the 4,000 frames manually, and spent many blissful hours with this stunning landscape. It was my intention to share the peace I felt within it by creating a meditation on this Enchanted Land of Gods. (Manila means enchanted, and Uttarakhand means The Land of Gods - it suits the name perfectly doesn't it?)

I also did a bit of writing about the experience as I was shooting this, which you can find here: brighitta.tumblr.com/tagged/lapse-of-time
