While waiting for this time-lapse I kept myself busy under seemingly still skies. Watching it after the fact was mesmerizing to see the turmoil that was actually happening above me. (Sorry about the big file, I didn’t have the heart to make it shorter)
Last week I took a much needed day off and time-lapsed a few clouds. I love watching time-lapse of clouds. It gives them life and movement that are almost impossible to grasp by just watching them in person. Soon as to changes the speed and context though, they give the sky a mood and a story.
These were in about a 4 mile area in the hills outside of Wenatchee.
The day was lovely enough, that even with four applications of sunblock, I managed to get sunburns.
For those of you who didn’t ride the bus across the city today, I time-lapsed it for you so you can feel like you did!
Alternatively, you can watch the clock on the bus and see how long I held as still as I could in the center back seat of the bus. I locked it down with my awkward.
I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a mediocre photographer. To make up for that though, I am good at post production. (Which is good because I’d be out of work if I wasn’t) This example is a bit of an extreme case of how much things get cleaned up after the fact, but ultimately everything gets some treatment.
