Time-lapse video of Superior’s North Shore

Below is a pretty cool compilation of time-lapse videos taken over the past few weeks along the North Shore. Definitely an early spring on the shore. I’m still trying to figure out what that lightning flash thing is at 1:07 during the Aurora activity, some kinda gamma ray flash or something. Pretty sweet.

Sweet indeed. This kid does some pretty amazing work. New fave video artist.

Pausing the vid makes me think that the flashes are from a passing car's headlights. Looks an awful lot like what you see on a time lapse single exposure at night with cars going by. Depending on how this lapse vid was shot and stitched, it's likely the same thing as you would see in a single frame. At any rate...very cool vid!

I'm sticking with gamma ray. I hope he was wearing his tin foil hat! [img]http://www.perfectduluthday.com/wp-content/uploads/comments/flash.jpg[/img]

Okay.. how did you do the 'moving' stop action. Where the camera pans / moves while stop action is occurring. That is very 'smooth'

@Les - I didn't shoot that video but to achieve panning in time-lapse video you need to use an auto panning tripod and set it to a very slow pan cycle. They sell them but they can be pricy. I read somewhere that you can get a panning telescope tripod much cheaper and retrofit it for a camera.
