A timelapse ode to clouds and their atmospheric beauty. Sit back, relax and watch the sky move.
As a paraglider pilot I've spent plenty of time with clouds and learning about them; observing them grow and decay, watching them being lit in various stunning colours throughout the day and also flying near and in them (cumulus in particular). For more on clouds, take a trip to cloudappreciationsociety.org
Shot in South Australia during 2010 around Adelaide, Mt Lofty Ranges, Fleurieu Peninsula, Mid North and Flinders Ranges. Over 8800 photos constructed the master timelapse sequences that made the cut but I shot around 30,000 throughout the year collecting sequences.
