This is an AMAZING piece of work. This is not a video. This was shot with a still camera. Over 150,000 images were used to create this 3 minute piece. A camera and a computer were sacrificed during the creation. The motion is sped up so we can see how these normally slow moving creatures live. It is stunning. A witness to the beauty and complexity of life.

This is a great piece showing what timelapse can do if used well.
It only took me 3 years to pull this together, but here it is, finally.
When I went to Arches in May of 2010, I shot a short series of stills from Dead Horse Point as the sun went down. My intention at the time was to animate it. I dropped the color because it wasn’t adding anything. The point was to capture the movement of the light and that is stronger in B&W.
I think its simple, but powerful.
I hope you like it.
