This is a short timelapse sequence I shot from the top of Mt Wellington overlooking Hobart Tasmania back on the 14th of October 2013. I was in Hobart for 6 nights and this was the only night where the wind and or cloud up there didn't make this impossible. As it was, I was forever checking my back and was ready to pack up within seconds as the rain and winds could arrive from behind the mountain without notice.

The previous day saw 130km/h winds rip over the peak, later leading to snow. The following night I was able to shoot for about 40 minutes before again the weather closed in. The wind this night was a relatively calm 20-30km/h until the rain arrived.

How was this shot?

Camera: Panasonic GH-2 + intervalometer
Lens: Samyang 7.5mm F3.5 Fish-eye MFT Mount
Settings: ISO 400 8 second exposures on 9 second interval, manual focus
Post processing: Adobe Lightroom and then assembled in Adobe Premiere.

In all I managed to create an ~9 second shot before the weather closed in so this has been slowed down to 75%. I added some pan and zooms around the frame to extend it into something a little longer.

I would be interested to hear what others think!
