1. For many years now I have been fortunate enough to live for part of each year on the shore of Lake Hallstatt in Upper Austria. This video is not about the town - but about the Lake itself.

    For day to night lapses and HDR I use Promote Control see - http://tinyurl.com/promotecontrol
    For motion control I use Emotimo (http://tinyurl.com/emotimo ) & Rhino Camera Gear ( rhinocameragear.com/)

    Hallstatt, the town, is famous for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times. It is a very popular summer tourist destination - so popular with the Chinese that they have actually built a replica of the town in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.

    The whole area has Unesco World Heritage status.

    Lake Hallstatt has been referred to as the "melancholic lake", the "still fjord" and the "vision of a perfect mountain lake". It is a classic relic of the Ice Age and it has a total area of 8.58 square KM lying between the steep Obertraun and Hallstatt mountains and Bad Goisern. It is the fifth largest of the Salzkammergut lakes.

    Although this lake is one of the darker, colder, less inviting lakes of the region, as a photographer I decided to use this darkness and stillness as a device to reveal the true beauty of the lake through its mirror-like surface.

    This is my reflective homage to

    'THE LAKE'

    I was fortunate to collaborate on the music for 'The Lake' with the french composer Vincent Jacq see his work here: vincentjacq.com facebook.com/VincentJacq vimeo.com/user3179553

  2. I have a deep affection for the Redwood forests of Northern California. This is my best attempt to capture the reverence I feel when in the presence of these giants.

  3. It was one hell of a journey during the fourteen months making Wyoming Wildscapes II, my second and final (maybe not!) Wyoming related time lapse project. Had plenty of adventures while working on this. Lightning almost got me a couple of times this summer, gear froze up in the winter (literally), and broke a few times (don't think most of the time lapse gear was meant for extended wilderness backpacking), all that fun stuff. Despite any minor set backs, this was without a doubt one of the most fulfilling personal projects I've ever undertaken. Saw some pretty amazing stuff along the way, this part of the country never ceases to amaze and surprise me.

  5. Update II: Check out my latest time lapse project: vimeo.com/simonchristen/timelapsecollection

    Update: Thank you so much to all of you. I am humbled and a little bit overwhelmed with all your comments. I am trying to answer all the questions (please keep 'em coming) but would like to thank each of you for taking the time to write a comment. I am reading them all. THANK YOU.
    Almost 3/4 of a million views and 10k likes in one week, I am floored. It truly makes me happy that my little film is able to connect with you and hopefully evokes the same feeling of happiness that I felt while shooting it.

    Thank you also so much to everybody that has left me tip. You are too kind!

    -

    It has been almost 3 years since I released "The Unseen Sea" and I'm excited and proud to share with you my latest project "Adrift".

    "Adrift" is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. I chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This is where “Adrift” was born.

    The weather conditions have to be just right for the fog to glide over the hills and under the bridge. I developed a system for trying to guess when to make the drive out to shoot, which involved checking the weather forecast, satellite images and webcams multiple times a day. For about 2 years, if the weather looked promising, I would set my alarm to 5am, recheck the webcams, and then set off on the 45-minute drive to the Marin Headlands.

    I spent many mornings hiking in the dark to only find that the fog was too high, too low, or already gone by the time I got there. Luckily, once in a while the conditions would be perfect and I was able to capture something really special. Adrift is a collection of my favorite shots from these excursions into the ridges of the Marin Headlands.

    I hope with my short film I am able to convey the feeling of happiness I felt while I experienced those stunning scenes.

    I am so grateful to Jimmy LaValle, from the band “The Album Leaf”, for composing a custom score for Adrift. Jimmy's music is fantastically beautiful and captures the mood perfectly. Please check out his website. Thanks again Jimmy for your hard work.

    I hope you enjoy the film and thank you for watching.

    i'd like to share with you what i see. A small part of my country (maybe the most natural of it) is here in this video, realized in Fontegreca (80 km far from Napoli) for an art project by Elena Luppino about nature and meditation.
    I hope you enjoy it. Have a nice day!
