this was my first experiment with time-lapse photography, i shot most of the footage from my apartment roof top over the course of about a month. some clips have intervals ranging from 10 seconds to three seconds. after the initial madness of boredom set in, it becomes quite meditative, hours pass and for the first time you start to actually realize how weather systems work, and also the effect of a chain of mountains can have on weather.
the location was mcleod ganj in himachal pradesh, northern india.
Filmed and edited by guardian.co.uk staff photographer Dan Chung.
