Creativity abounds, and people will always be expressive in the medium they are given.
A bit ago we featured some beautiful examples of time-lapse photography here on our blog. Well, like in those videos, time has passed and even more beauty has been compiled and created.
“Ascendance” by Henry Jun Wah Lee takes us to Joshua Tree National Park and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest during the Perseid Meteor shower.
“48h in HK, ’12″ is exactly as it sounds, taken over 48 hours in Hong Kong by Claire&Max. Using clever editing and featuring different techniques of time-dilation, it shows the city in different, artistic ways.
With a dramatic soundtrack, “Timestorm” shows clouds forming across the dramatic landscape of the Alps. By Martin Heck, shot in unprocessed RAW and processed in 4K (twice the resolution of 1080p), the images here are quite arresting.
Next up is “Purely Pacific Northwest” by John Ecklund. Shot entirely in Oregon and Washington state, this one took over 260,000 pictures and 6.3 terabytes of data. Meditative and awe-inspiring, the views here remind me just how small we are in this universe.
This video, “Nightfall”, surprised me. Through the lens of an artist, even the sprawl and daunting traffic of L.A. becomes incredibly beautiful. Photographer Colin Rich does a great job finding the soul of the metropolis.
This last video, prosaically titled, “View from the ISS at Night”, is done by Knate Meyers. The photos are from NASA, and he gathered them all, edited out the noise and created this wonderful tribute to the astronauts and their efforts.
