30 Days Time Lapse at Sea

You wouldn’t have thought a time lapse of a cargo ship sailing halfway around the world would be so relaxing and pleasant to watch. Especially 10 minutes of it. It really is though. Someone called Jeff.HK posted this on youtube and I meant to watch a little bit of it and get on with my life. Then I zoned out and watched it all. This is the combination of 80,000 high res photos – 1500GB of files.

The route was:

Red Sea — Gulf of Aden — Indian Ocean — Colombo — Malacca Strait — Singapore — South East China Sea — Hong Kong

Camera used: D750, Rokinon 12mm f/2.8

Highlights are:

0:32 Milky Way

1:17 Approaching the Port of Colombo

1:45 Cargo Operation

2:08 Departure Colombo with Rainstorm

3:13 Lightning Storm in Malacca Strait and Singapore Strait

3:29 Clear night sky Milky Way with lightning storm

5:09 Arrival Singapore

5:56 Departure Singapore

8:36 Squid Boats

9:15vArrival Hong Kong

Time lapse video of Earth from space

The Earth. From Space.

The Earth. From Space.

If you are a regular reader you may be aware that I occasionally use the odd superlative, too many swearwords, and am guilty of overusing the phrase ‘awesome’. Well, thanks to a Spanish filmmaker called Fede Castro, you are going to see me massively revert to type. This time lapse video of Earth from space is fucking awesomely brilliant. It uses footage released by NASA’s Johnson Space Center and makes the Earth look ever so pretty.

There are times when I despair about humans (usually religion related) and there are times when I think we are an incredible species striving for knowledge and achieving amazing things (usually science or creativity related). This clip makes me think the latter. Go science.
