You can pick your favorite symbol of springtime from any number of familiar images. In Seattle, the local favorite is a rain-soaked figure clutching a latte with a cold, dead look in their eyes. But it's hard to beat the natural beauty and optimism of a blooming flower. That's the imagery that dominates filmmaker Jamie Scott's recent time-lapse titled 'Spring,' a follow-up to his popular video 'Fall' of a couple of years ago.

He gives FStoppers a fascinating look at what it takes to create a time-lapse of this scope. Not surprisingly, a lot of patience and hard drive space were involved. Watch the video, check out the behind-the-scenes and let us know what you think in the comments.
