I’ve always been fascinated with time-lapse imagery – especially of clouds and weather, naturally.
I’ve dabbled a bit myself, with my most recent examples being of Comet Lovejoy last Boxing Day (I also posted a still image on our KCPS blog), and cloud over Kapiti Island in January.
Around then I was in touch with a friend of a friend from Taupo, Bevan Percival, who was just getting going on time-lapse photography. Boy has he got going.
I highly recommended you check out his “NZ Landscape Timelapse Volume 1” on Vimeo or YouTube. Do watch it in HD (1080p). It’s a series of time lapses mostly around the central North Island, and just stunning.
Brilliant!!!! I think the clouds and the night sky look the best.
Excellent! I am particularly intrigued by the view beginning at 1:25 of the video. There you can easily see the clouds moving right to left, then reflecting off the mountains and moving back from left to right. Spectacular.
