Winter is Coming Timelapse

I’m a summer person, but I must admit that winter brings some fascinating things to shoot, so when I heard that a storm is heading our way, I had this timelapse idea in mind.

I live just 3 minutes from the beach in Tel Aviv, so I had no excuses for not trying to shoot it. I woke up and checked the weather app on my iPhone, and it told me that clouds would be arriving in an hour, so I took my bag and my tripod and headed out to a viewpoint near the Hilton Hotel.

As I got there, I set up my GoPro HERO4 to take a timelapse, taking an image every 2 seconds. The is the result:

As the GoPro was shooing away, I was taking photos with my Sony NEX-7. I wasn’t really excited about the results, except for this image which I think is OK. It’s not a portfolio image but catching that Crow in flight and the great clouds helps make it interesting, in my opinion.

After covering every idea I had, I figured why not try a timelapse with Sony. So I set it up to take an image every 10 seconds, and I planned for a 10 second timelapse, but I had to cut it short as the rain was already upon me, so it turned out to be 6 seconds.

I’m getting to like time lapses, and I’m planning to shoot more so I can eventually combine them into one long timelapse.

Stay tuned 🙂
