Time Lapse Photography

I’ve always wanted to play around with timelapse photography, and recently found a cool little device, the Pclix, that makes it really easy. This is a little box that triggers the camera to take shots at a predetermined interval.

Today was a good cloud day in Sunnyvale, so I managed to get almost three hours of cloudscape, shot at 10 second intervals, and converted the resulting 930 images into the following movie (QuickTime 7 required):

The clouds get dark and moody half-way through, and there’s an interesting counter current of wind in the lower right corner (possibly some bay-effect wind) that leads to some nice turbulence.
