„Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but nature's sources never fail.“ - John Muir - Our National Parks, 1901
El Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls. Everyone knows those famous attractions of the nature in Yosemite National Park.

Nothing happens unless first a dream - Carl Sandburg
If you would ask me, what influenced me most, when I was a teenager, I would mention this quote of Carl Sandburg. It was printed on a poster of Uluṟu, which was called Ayers Rock in the 1990s outside of Australia. For over ten years that poster was hanging around and I had seen it every day. It is not surprising that the wish to travel to Down Under became stronger each year. Finally in 2010 I did my first trip to Australia, a further trip followed.
And I returned again in 2015 - this time I wanted to bring back something for everybody staying at home - Australia’s Nature. Incredible coast lines like the Twelve Apostel, Byron Bay, Cape Conran (Thanks Helmut :), Queensland coast from Daintree to Gold Coast and the outback with simply nothing for thousands of kilometers and than suddenly the Uluṟu or the Devil Marbles.
Many trips starting and ending in the big cities of Australia - but you haven’t been to Australia, if you just stay there. It is not all about Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne …. you have to go out and experience that continent on your own. The film starts and ends in the cities, but between you will see what you could see in three weeks of that amazing land. We couldn’t be everywhere, but one day we will return and perhaps we will bring you another piece of nature from Down Under.
The outcome of the last trip is a 8k time-lapse in true HDR. Not that tone-mapping thing - it is real HDR for the newest displays.
Thanks for the fantastic soundtrack and mix to Kriz Mental for this 8K / 4K / UHD timelapse. Thanks to Alex for the title design and for polishing the graphics for this time lapse again. Thanks to Stef for her support to realize this Australia timelapse.

4k, 8k, HDR … technology is developing rapidly - and so is time lapse and timelapse production. Which city could better fit as a place for that technical demo, if not Big Apple - New York City. The video shows the city in one of its less frenetic times of the year - around Christmas - but this city never sleeps.
Enjoy our first technical preview of a series of ultra high definition clips in HDR.
This 8k time-lapse was produced with cameras with more than 42 Megapixels and enough dynamic range to produce REAL High Dynamic Range - HDR - footage.
The next journey already started (oh, to be honest, it started a year ago and is now in postproduction …) and we will come back soon with another 8k HDR adventure.
Thanks for the fantastic soundtrack and mix to Kriz Mental for this 8K / 4K / UHD timelapse. Thanks to Alex for the title design and for polishing the graphics for this time lapse again. Thanks to Stef for her support to realize this New York City timelapse.
Many thanks to all of you for supporting this project - not with money - but for building such great hard- and software! Thanks to @emotimo and @dynamicperception for your great time-lapse tools and especially LR Timelapse for postproduction. Final editing with Adobe Premiere Pro and HDR Grading with Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve. Title design with Adobe After Effects.
See the light of the night of New York City from the top of the Empire State Building, in Chicago you feel the perishing wind at the end of October and if you listen carefully, you will hear the sound of San Francisco’s Cable Cars, on our ride throughout down town. You love it? - we do!

You travel to the Griffith Observatory, the Empire State Building, the One World Trade Center during construction, Manhattan, Tongue Point … and so many more.
Not enough? What about Niagara Falls, Lake Palourde, Keene Lake, Horseshoe Bend, White Mountains, Hobson CP and the Mississippi River?
Visit Alberta, Arizona, Arkansas, British Columbia, California and Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, New Hampshire, New York, Nevada, Massachusetts and Maine, Missouri, Ontario, Oregon, Saskatchewan, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
Three years - three months - three trips - now we show the best. One of the longest timelapses perhaps - we call it the EPIC :) And that was the trip. More than 10.000 km each year - a great mix of landscapes and cityscapes - absolutely amazing!
Thanks for the fantastic soundtrack and mix to Kriz Mental homecookin.de and his drummer Lu Kleff.
Thanks to Alex for the title design and for polishing the graphics. Thanks to Stef for her support - she is the best camera assistant with a lot of patience for this time consuming job - love you!
The next journey will start soon … and it will be 8K!
Many thanks to all of you for supporting this project - not with money - but for building such great hard- and software! Thanks to @emotimo and @dynamicperception for your great tools. Thank you to Canon - your 5D MK II and 5D MK III have done more than 100.000 pictures for that journey through North America.

Drei Jahre - drei Monate - drei Reisen - und nun zeigen wir Dir das Beste davon. Sicher, es ist eher einer der längeren Timelapse - wir nennen ihn "das Epos"! :) Mit mehr als 10.000 km jedes Jahr und einer großartigen Mischung aus Landschaften und Städten - absolut unglaublich und atemberaubend!
Die nächste Reise startet schon bald ... dann produzieren wir in 8K!
