I’ve wanted to do this for a long time but was never sure how to do it or where to go to find the right shot. In 10 days I’m flying to Sri Lanka and intend to do a lot of photography, so I thought I’d try out my first GoPro timelapse. I recently bought a 128gb microSD card, a tripod, and a battery pack, so I was all set.
In the very first seconds there is a black blur, which – upon closer inspection – turned out to be a curious magpie who spent about a minute dancing about in front of my camera:
The video is, of course, technically not very impressive. It’s a composite of four timelapses to compensate for the changing light.
