Play time ... clouds float, what else can they do?

Posted by Dave Bull at 2:31 AM, November 22, 2011 [Permalink]

A month or so ago, a small package arrived here at the Seseragi Studio. Inside was a new toy - the Recolo IR5 Interval Recorder.

So what's that?

Well, what better way to explain than to show!

Yes, it's a time lapse view of the sky as seen from one of the upstairs windows!

What you see in the 1 minute 38 second long video took place in a two hour span in real time. I bet you can't watch this one just once! Nothing much seems to be happening at first, but watch over on the right hand side, as some small black clouds enter the scene ... And then, all while this 'invasion' going on, the upper clouds just keep flowing in their original direction ...

There are a few more of these over on my YouTube Channel. I'll upload more as and when nature co-operates with something interesting!

For anybody interested, the Recolo website is here. (That's a Japanese page, but it has English titles, and you can click around to get the idea how this thing works ...)

Time lapse cloudscapes like that always make me think of Beethoven symphonies. And conversely, Beethoven symphonies always make me think of cloudscapes.

Yes, putting music to these would be fun, but I just don't have time to play with that sort of thing. This has been a 'hands off' game so far: I put the camera in the (open) upstairs window in the morning, select the settings I want (usually one shot per three seconds, to be played back later at a frame rate of 24fps), turn it on, and then go downstairs to work. Come evening, I retrieve it and play back the video while I nibble my dinner. If there is something interesting, I save it ...

The three clips on YouTube (so far) are short clips trimmed from those files.
