Milky Way Time Lapse

I don’t know why I’m so surprised by this, but it is about a million times quicker to slap together a short <60second video than a full length video clip. I have so many little bits and pieces in the archives that it’s effortless. They are pretty cool bits and pieces too, but none long enough for a full video. When I have enough clips, I create full videos, but mostly I have bits and pieces from short explorsions, or failed attempts at bigger projects.

One evening I noticed it was a perfectly clear night. Not only were there no clouds, but there was no haze in the air either. So I set my alarm for 3am and drove to a beach with less light pollution than what is near me. I set up the camera, but after an hour I got caught out at high tide. With wet feet I drove a little further down the road to a lookout where I captured the last of the darkness before dawn. I looooooooove the hues of the sky as it changes at dawn. And yes, one of the photos from this time lapse made it to the cover of Dream Frequency.

The music from this is my cover of Californian Soil by London Grammar. I put it on the Elsewhere album.
