Wyoming's stunning weather and landscapes in time-lapse
Published Jan 15, 2014 | dpreview staff
Photographer Nicolaus Wegner's dedication to his craft has produced a captivating time-lapse video of the wild weather and beautiful landscapes of his home state. In the 14 months it took him to complete his Wyoming Wildscapes II project, he saw it all — from meteor showers, to lightning across hills and prairies, and 60mph winds.
According to Wegner's website, consider some of the numbers behind the making of the video:
- 150 days of driving, walking, backpacking, shooting, and exploring.
- 20,000 miles driven.
- 100+ miles hiked in the wilderness and back country with a pack full of cameras, lenses, time-lapse gear, and a slider.
- 125,000 stills taken over the entire project.
- 20,000 photographs in the video that runs at 24fps, 1920x1080.
- 75 sequences in the video.
- 3 weeks of burning up hard drive space processing, rendering, re-processing, re-rendering, re-processing.
