A Year on the Loaf

As some of you well know, I like to wander.  When I wander, I usually bring a camera.  Since moving up to Sugarloaf last November, I've taken far too many time-lapses, all with the intent of of some vague, eventual something.  This is the first something.  The idea occurred to me this past Fall, while considering that we'd been up here for almost a year, "I'll put some of my favorites together and finish/upload it on the day we moved in."  It seemed a reasonable goal, but some Final Cut debacles, along with a case of extreme restlessness, proved otherwise.  But finally, a month and a half late, here it is!  All footage in the video was shot by myself, and all within 5 minutes of our home.  As always, click through to Vimeo to watch the video in 1080p high-definition.  The song is "Wildflower Honey" by Steep Ravine.  Enjoy!

Big Country

This was an interesting one to say the least.  I set up the camera, we ate our turkey sandwiches, and the next thing we knew, the winds were howling and the peaks had vanished into the clouds.  We hid in the trees, attempting to defend ourselves from fifteen minutes of heavy sleet.  Keep an eye out for the cliff jumper on the far right, as well as folks on the rocky shoreline and above the tree line.  As always, it's available in 1080p HD over at Vimeo.  The song is "Big Country" by Béla Fleck & The Flecktones.

Sun and Shade

I promised it "tonight" and here it is.  Looking north along Boulder's famous Flatirons, this clip captures an early afternoon thunderstorm rolling in and dropping sheets of rain over the far end of the peaks.  As before, click through to Vimeo to watch the video in 1080p high definition.  The song is "Up on the Hill Where They Do the Boogie" by John Hartford.  Though I'm still testing different settings and working out the kinks, please feel free to leave some comments and enjoy!

From the Country

After years of flirting with the idea, I've finally produced some time lapses with the primary objective of capturing the meteorological and astronomical landscapes of our great planet.  Below, the first of many, is a three hour time lapse looking southwest towards New York City. Clouds streak across the night sky, and planes jet in and out of the city's three major airports.  To watch the video in high-definition, head on over to Vimeo.  The song is "Nellie Jean" by The Slip.  As always, please let me know what you think and enjoy!
