“The Violet Wedge” I set up early for this sunset timelapse, when there wasn’t much colour in the clouds. I had a feeling it might be a good sunset, but you never know for sure until it happens. Luckily my camera settings were still good once the sky exploded with colour. What a show! This is 178 photos stacked into one image. I stacked the first 39 using the streaks present from this script, advancedstacker.com which fades in the photos, getting rid of harsh lines at the beginning of the cloud trails.
Since Jiutóu was my first big cosplay project of the year, I decided to make a timelapse video of the process of it. With some “cinematic” shots of the finished costume at the end of the video ^-^ I am so excited for MCM this weekend! Though might change out of this monster of a cosplay during the afternoon, bc I will probably not survive in it the whole day ;w;
Timelapses from the @boardpusher #elpasodetourtour. The circular light trails were made using my iPhone strobe while I was stomping out #boardpusher on the side of the sand dune. The drone shot at the end is the final product.

Watch the whole thing, but if you miss the shots of stars reflecting back to the camera off of telescopes at about 1:45 and 5:00 you’re cheating yourself. That’s awesome.
I have imaged nightscapes since early 90s, explored the 7 continents seeking starry skies and natural beauties of night. Of all the stargazing destinations I have been to, La Palma has been the most favorite for elegant beauty both in day and night. It is not only a dream Canary island for hikers, also the stargazing paradise of Europe. On the top of the island at the edge of Caldera de Taburiente (2400m/8000ft) you are usually above a sea of clouds and under an ocean of stars. The view to both the earth and the sky is extremely dramatic. The peak is also home to a major observatory with a dozen of research telescopes. I have been many times on the island to do an annual week-long workshop and photo tour called Astromaster on nightscape astrophotography and timelapse (astromaster.astrolapalma.com) with both serious amateur and professional photographers attending from all across the globe. The clips are available in HD, 2K and 4K (some in higher resolution too). For inquiries contact me at email@example.com
As I previously mentioned, T. tectorum has the most spectacular trichomes - the “hairs” or “scales” found on most air plants. They’re designed to capture water efficiently: even water droplets as small as mist get pulled in. An air plant appears becomes greener once it is fully moistened. When they are ready to look for more water, the trichomes open up in the span of an hour or two (the opening up part of this time lapse was taken over 3 hours, which I compressed to 6 seconds). Plants operate on a different timescale than animals, so time lapse photography helps us observe the fun things they do! #airplant #airplantlove #tillandsia #tillandsiatectorum #houseplants #indoorplants #houseplantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantlove #plantlife #plantsofinstagram #plantstagram #botanical #botany #greenery #timelapse #best_timelapse #hyperlapse
Now this is pretty awesome. Watch the patterns in the fog behind that building (viewed from the John Hancock Center, Chicago). You can make out a swirling, alternating vortex pattern. The fog is defining a Von Karman vortex pattern.
lots of people said they enjoyed the time lapse in my vlog so I decided to make another and post it here! (watch in HD if you’re trendy)
tomorrow I’m going to do a maths and physics paper under exam conditions and see how I get on, so this evening I went through my revision guide, made a note of some things I often forget as well as going through the last paper I did to see where I lost marks (in physics). I then did some maths and went over a worked example of a calculus question I got wrong in my paper last year using examsolutions.net :)
