Time-Lapse Video

The month of February granted us an unusual amount of sunshine. This video was shot from our favourite Taite Creek campground south of Fauquier. I placed my Canon camcorder on the beach and pointed it east onto the nearby mountains where interesting cloud formations attracted my attention. While my wife and I were walking along the beach, the camera recorded the mountain scene for about 25 minutes. At home, I accelerated the video over 1000 times with my editor and produced this 40 sec video. Enjoy.

    Great video! But I am even more amazed that you could leave your camera unattended for 25 minutes with no concerns.

      In the real world you would think that the clouds are not moving at all.

    What I wanted to ask, cam corder, is that like the camera one has in the car? Because, now that my husband has shown me how to use the editing programme for videos, I would love to try what you did with this video. 20 minutes is a long time, my camera and my mobile phone can’t cope, but the car camera could. I just wouldn’t dare to leave it out by itself for 20 minutes here … 😉

    Nice, Peter. I agree with Amy. It may have been perfectly safe but I would not leave my camera, or camcorder if I had one, unattended for that long.This looks like a wonderful place.

    Nice. If you are keen to experiment, try an action camera with time-lapse. Even mobile phones have this option. You can mount it on a tripod.

    I’ve seen speeded-up videos in nature documentaries on television but have never before seen one done by someone I know. Good job.
