Snownado! You can see this in much better quality near the end of this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4XjDSYvKNM&feature=youtu.be
Instead of slowly falling to the ground, on this day the wind was picking up the snow off the ground (in the case the lake) and throwing it into the air.
I’ve been waiting for this all winter. Checking the sky most nights for light pillars, which are created by ice crystals in the sky reflecting lights on the ground. I noticed some weak, short lived pillars in a timelapse I shot a little while ago, but they weren’t very exciting. Then I saw some another night, but I didn’t have my camera handy, and by the time I got it, they were pretty much gone. However, on this night, the pillars were plentiful, some of the best I’ve ever seen. This is a pano made from 3 shots.
397 photos in one image. I “cheated” a little for this one. It was really windy when I shot this timelapse, and using my telephoto lens only amplified that. The trees ended up pretty washed out in places from the movement, so I captured the silhouettes of the trees from a single photo as best I could and added it back into the mix.
A collection of my favorite timelapes I shot in 2013. There’s about 140 timelapses in this video. Each timelapse is about 4 seconds long. All photos were taken in Ontario, Canada. I used a Canon EOS 60D with Magic Lantern software. I also made the music. So far 2014 is going great. I’ve been planning a trip across Canada, and that, along with the things I’ve learned, should make my “Best of 2014” even better. I hope you enjoy!
305 photos representing 2 hours and 45 minutes of real time in one image. I just read that there is nothing to stop earth from spinning, so it could potentially spin forever. Perpetual motion? Possibly, but somehow I doubt it. I think the universe will out live earth because the sun will devour our planet someday, (don’t worry, it won’t happen anytime soon) and that is just a mere “drop in the ocean” of this too-big-to-imagine thing we call the universe. Life is beautifully ridiculous, and that is why I love it!
65 photos merged into one image using the lighten layer-blending mode in photoshop. For most of this winter, there’s been a bit of open water on shore where Lake Ontario meets my backyard. There’s an underground stream causing this to happen, but I’m not sure how the water keeps from freezing.
Looking west between the north and south poles where the two hemispheres meet. 372 photos representing 2 hours and 45 minutes of time in one image.
