  1. This montage was filmed during two years of trips around California, Arizona, Utah, and Hawaii. Locations include Yosemite, Death Valley, Arches, Canyonlands, and Joshua Tree National Parks. Other locations include Mt. Whitney (the tallest peak in the continental U.S.), Havasupai Falls (in the Grand Canyon), Monument Valley, the Salton Sea, the San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm, the Tehachapi Pass Wind Farm, Goblin Valley, Trona Pinnacles, Honolulu (the two urban scenes), the Valley of Fire, Horseshoe Bend, and several other spots I would prefer not to disclose.

    Many of the locations required carrying way too much camera gear on multi-day backpacking trips into the wilderness. Over 12,000 images were included in this montage, and those represent perhaps half of the total amount filmed. More of my still and timelapse work can be found here, at sgphotos.com, and at flickr.com/photos/geekyrocketguy. The fullres timelapse is 4K resolution, though Vimeo doesn't support it...

    I used home-built motion equipment (a dolly and a rotary table) in many of the scenes. They use motors salvaged from discarded printers and an Arduino microcontroller for the user interface. More information on it is available at sgphotos.com/portfolio/timelapse/motionproject/.

    Music: "Verses" by Russian Circles.

  2. DARK SKY IN CANARIAS.
    Os presento mi último trabajo, un timelapse que es fruto de la recopilación de todas las secuencias nocturnas realizadas en mis viajes a Canarias en los últimos cuatro años. (2.011 – 2.014).
    Ya lo he comentado en varias ocasiones y no voy a descubrir nada nuevo al decir que las Islas Canarias tienen unos de los mejores cielos a nivel mundial para realizar observaciones espaciales, de ahí que tengan instalaciones en las islas para estos fines con representación de multitud de países.
    El timelapse que os presento está grabado en Tenerife (Parque Nacional de las Cañadas del Teide – 2.200 m), La Palma (Roque de los muchachos – 2.400 m) y El Hierro (Miradores de Malpaso y Jinama – 1.500 m).
    Han sido muchas noches de disfrutar de auténticas maravillas mirando las estrellas, en unas ocasiones en compañía y otras en soledad.
    Cuando te encuentras a solas con las estrellas en estos lugares tan privilegiados son muchos los sentimientos que te asaltan, te sientes infinitamente pequeño, casi diría que te encuentras a ti mismo.
    También tengo que decir que para conseguir estas imágenes también ha tocado pasar frio, hambre y por qué no decirlo algún que otro “miedo”, de noche todo se magnifica.
    Pero como siempre digo, una vez visto el resultado el esfuerzo merece la pena.
    Por último dar las gracias a todos los que han compartido alguna noche conmigo por esas alturas y a todos los que me habéis enseñado a realizar este tipo de fotografía y por supuesto a los canonikos!!!.

  3. Westcliffe, Colorado is located about an hour and a half southwest of Colorado Springs in the Wet Mountain Valley. Surrounded on each side by the Sangre de Cristo mountain range to the west and the Wet Mountains to the east, this small community has a beautiful backdrop and plenty of sights to see.

    We started capturing time-lapse footage of the Custer county area a few years back and have steadily grown our collection. This year we pushed to capture some of the last things on our list to finish a short movie. In the end we spent over a hundred hours capturing and editing these time-lapse clips. We didn’t get every shot we wanted, and there will certainly be more we will capture in the future, but it shows off just a small bit of the offerings of this wonderful area of the state.

    This video is our first time-lapse to be mastered and released in 4K UHD. This may not mean much to most right now but the entire visual experience looks even better in this format, but don't worry, this video looks good at almost any resolution. Unfortunately Vimeo doesn't support 4K UHD resolution but if you have a computer fast enough and a good monitor you can watch it on our YouTube page youtu.be/2gUL3wtIhqg

    Those that are curious about some of the locations of these clips should visit our blog post on this for a complete breakdown of the movie, which can be found here - blog.stephcoffmanphoto.com/2014/10/08/westcliffe-colorado-time-lapse/

    We hope you enjoy the movie. Also thanks to all of the great people in Custer county Colorado for keeping this place beautiful.

    This is a time-lapse video resulting from a 15,000 km (almost 10,000 miles) long road trip and tens of thousands of images taken along the way over the last 5 months. The journey has covered all of Norway’s 19 counties, from the far south to the Russian border in the Northeast.

    The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway, everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Nothern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime. The video shows some of the most scenic places in Norway, such as Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen.

    It's easy to forget what lies just beyond your back door step sometimes. In the last 6 months I've struggled to make it anywhere near the New Zealand wilderness landscapes that I just love to venture into with a few survival essentials and the usual gear - my cameras, tripods, batteries, dew straps, lenses, slider rigs, panning heads etc etc strapped to my back in search of some cool places and the angles to compose them and the light to showcase them. In the hard to reach places sometimes capturing just 20 seconds of time lapse footage takes months of waiting and a lot of planning.

    When your out all alone in the remote areas the reality of life is broken down into very simple things. Staring up into the infinity of a clear star filled sky, in a half sleep state, and as the frost starts to settle, all there is to worry about is that your sleeping bag is warm enough, the fire is not going to die, the camera shutters are still going click click every 30 sec or so, that the lens heaters are stopping your lenses from fogging up - not complicated - pretty simple really - pretty easy to be happy.

    Here's some footage shot over the last little while, in Aotearoa (The Land of the Long White Cloud) - New Zealand's North and South Islands - a special place of great beauty.

    Please leave a comment if you wish, I'd love to hear from you. Once again, it is my hope that in bringing back a little piece of nature to portray in this way helps spark the respect we need to have for such incredible places.

    All scenes shot in the North and South Island's of New Zealand.

    Footage available to license up to 4k resolution.

    Main equipment used:
    Canon 5D Mark II & III cameras and various Canon Lenses
    Dynamic Perception Stage Zero 6ft Dolly
    Emotimo TB3 Black

    Music:
    "Perpetual" by Tony Anderson, licensed for use through The Music Bed.

    Thanks to my family for putting up with my habit ;)
