Although not new to time lapse, this video is my first larger scale time lapse compilation cut down to over 10k photo frames equaling 33 scenes of various night sky events from Northern Michigan 2012. It took a year to shoot in many cold nights and took a lot of coffee, a bit tenacity and persistence to get this into a form of coherent electrified cosmic goodness. Night sky-capes include multiple northern lights scenes, meteor showers, nebulae, planets, including Venus and Jupiter setting from Spring 2012, constellations, the milky way, comet Pan-Starrs, night-scapes over both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. Thought I might mention some of the more interesting wildlife encounters during the photo gathering- 1.sparring moose on Isle Royale under a pitch black sky after wrapping the Isle Royale Tobin Harbor airglow / northern lights opening scene at 3am in the morning, with their thunderous antlers clashing with fear inducing power that could be felt in the knashing soundwaves echoing in the hills, (and I had to hike a two mile 'deer path' back to my shelter in the direction of those moose, I survived to tell the tale without getting pancaked) 2. the howl of wolves in the eastern UP piercing the freezing air under a calm full moon sky 3.a particularly persistent beaver on an inland lake in the Hiawatha National Forest, determined to be in just about every frame with a methodically spaced tail slap on an otherwise beautifully FLAT CALM star reflected lake- sooo even though the star reflection sequence is blown by this beaver with a 'tude, the scene is included anyway as a humorous memory 4. the blue heron fishing for a midnight snack by auroral light at the mouth of Sand River and Lake Superior- if only I would have not moved, this heron would have walked the river bank thru the entire frame.. Rare pairings caught on camera include ribbons of aurora above a full moon fogbow on the horizon of Lake Superior, the aurora and an isolated singular lightning storm cloud over Lake Superior, and the aurora and Milky Way in several scenes including Copper Harbor, Marquette, Isle Royale, Pictured Rocks, and Eagle Harbor Lighthouse. There are also a couple sequences of rare magenta/red aurora that I will never tire of. 3:45, 4:26 Blue Heron paused at 00:57 before I accidentally scared him away 00:15 incredible color spectrum of airglow and aurora- Isle Royale with big dipper reflection 1:54 lightning and aurora in July 2:13 Meteor Shower 2:40- beaver tail slap 2:54 Lake Superior Ice currents 3:36- featured on NBC Nightly News April 2012 5:07- Venus, Jupiter setting 5:42-PanStarrs 6:03-full moon Fogbow over Lake Superior under northern lights Thanks to Brian Malone for getting the scene at 2:54. I feel extremely fortunate to have witnessed and photographed the several strong auroral outbursts shown here from 2012 at a relatively southern 46.5 degrees latitude in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and am so grateful for the advances in high iso dslr technology to allow for time-lapse capture to be able to create these sequences for such high quality video reproduction of the night sky. All scenes are within 200 miles or so of my home in Marquette, Mi. and I feel very blessed to live where I do and to share the beauty that I see 'in my own backyard' with you. I hope it inspires others to take time to find the beauty that is everywhere around us and also to raise an awareness about the importance of preserving our night wondrous starlit skies. A special thanks to David Helpling and Jon Jenkins who granted permission to use their spectacular track, " Lifted" - from the album "The Crossing" , thanks again David and Jon- so glad to know of this track, I couldn't have thought of a more fitting and inspiring piece of music as a contributing impetus to the completion of this project- you can find more of David Helpling and Jon Jenkins music at www.spottedpeccary.com.

      • Seeking Michigan (Part 1)

        Please watch in Fullscreen & HD with sound for best quality. To avoid skipping, please let the video fully load. Seeking Michigan is an ongoing personal project that I started work on in February 2013. Over the past year, I have been making trips around Michigan and up to the Upper Peninsula on a frequent basis to discover and explore the beauty of this state. Sleeping in the back of my car, walking through forests at night, getting lost on dirt roads, and driving for hours on end around this gorgeous place has been an incredible inspiration to me. So much so that I decided one piece just simply wouldn't do it for me. The goal for me in this project is to continue to see new, special things about Michigan, and share my experiences with the viewer. Dedicated to my grandmother. Special thanks to Kessler Crane for providing me with the motion control equipment used in the making of this video. All timelapse motion was done using Kessler gear. The slow motion was mostly done handheld. The timelapses were all shot on the Canon 5D Mark III, and the slow motion was done on the RED Epic. www.KesslerCrane.com Music Sufjan Stevens - Niagara Falls From the album "Greetings from Michigan", which is available for purchase on iTunes. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/greetings-from-michigan-great/id327920307 Website www.EricHinesPhotography.com Twitter Twitter.com/EricHinesPhotos Facebook Facebook.com/EricHinesPhotography

          Departed Bayfield the morning after the fireworks and ducked behind Stockton Island before the storm. With a sturdy anchor and good holding ground (also cocoa and a novel or two), hunkering is as fine as a day's sail.

            Summer stops for lemonade - she's sweet as you remember You fill her glass and contemplate the distance to September. There's every reason she should stay; who else could love her more? But halfway through your serenade she's dancing out the door. "Not Enough" by the GoStation

                      As The World Falls Away - David Helpling The official music video for David Helpling's "As The World Falls Away" created by Shawn Malone of Lake Superior Photo. Featuring Shawn's latest cinematic Time-lapse work filmed entirely in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with sequences from NASA's ISS, here the images and music merge as one in this stunning visual journey. Created with Canon 5d Mark II/III and various astrophoto lenses, a Dynamic Perception Stage One/MX3 system and premiere pro for motion, this project took many weeks of shooting and editing to complete. Most of the scenes were shot in 2014, including scenes from the record breaking cold winter on icy Lake Superior, to a late September 2014 auroral substorm from Isle Royale National Park, Michigan.
