Time lapse captures variety of tumultuous weather

Have you ever heard the term, "If you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes?" Here is an amazing time lapse video showing that statement can hold a great deal of truth. Three different storms roll through this beautiful scenery while calm and even some sun break through in the middle. The winds change direction and the incredible clouds rush by showing the awe of nature. This video was taken in Northern Minnesota, where there can be very volatile weather. What a great day to catch on a time lapse!

Beautiful Time Lapse Footage Of Northern Minnesota39s

Beautiful Time Lapse Footage Of Northern Minnesota

Are you having a stressful day? Take a moment and enjoy the rolling clouds of a beautiful serene day in Northern Minnesota. This time-lapse video was taken on a beautiful day during the summer. Unfortunately, summer doesn’t last long here and the harsh winter comes quickly and stays for a long time. But, thanks to videos, we can enjoy this beautiful summer day whenever we want. Enjoy! Clouds seem to take on a life of their own in this time-lapse landscape drama from Minnesota. Where still life painters capture a single frame of the essence of a scene, in this dynamic interlude we see that the only thing that doesn’t change is change itself. The earth breathes, moves, is alive. Everything has its own frequency. The sky is a low vibration, where the wind slowly pushes white cotton candy across a thick layer of the atmosphere. The surface of the water rings like a bell in shorter wavelengths. Docked watercraft sway mesmerizingly to and fro, like the pendulum of a wall clock. Imperceptibly slower is the very blue sky, itself, which seems not at all to change, and yet we know it must eventually give way to an orange sunset. The lowest vibration is the trees, solidly and unchangingly still and green. But, what if this time-lapse captured the entire cycle of the year? Would we not also see the change in them? Orchestrated together, it is a world symphony. We are transfixed by the dreamy scene, and yet the dream too quickly ends here. Even the video author concedes that summer is a vapid dream in the north. The colors and shades are very subtle. Maybe some of us are drawn to different parts of the composition. I like the clouds, with their creamy textures and variation from white to dark gray. You may be drawn to the water, with its moving surface that reflects the sky . We see that the lake even seems to move more quickly than the sky reflected upon its surface. Sunlight spray paints the green trees on the horizon, which was green, then wan black, according to the whims of the moving clouds. The scene is therapeutic, inducing a hypnotic calm that temporarily shuts out the noise from a tumultuous world outside our urban windows. In this way, a good nature video is not only artistic but may even be medicinal. Try to imagine such a scene while wearing virtual goggles. Not every virtual world need be a violent dystopia . Give us more of this! We can only achieve such a composition with good equipment. A camera with video capability and high volume memory chip is needed, but it must have a setting that allows automatic snapshot at regular, predetermined intervals. The camera is, no doubt, mounted to a sturdy tripod. We hope the camera is either weatherproof or covered by some protector. The camera artist here certainly demonstrates the gift of the presentation itself. We hope this person pursues the craft with fastidious diligence. Perhaps the genre only attracts a small target audience, but even niche audiences have a right to enjoy what they prefer to enjoy. This is subtle, introspective drama, which contrasts so oppositely to the near slapstick of funny and cute animal videos. No need to explain our preferences, and there is no need to apologize. Not everybody will be enamored of a tranquil lake scene, but for those of us who are, watching is its own reward.

Time Lapse Shows The Making Of A Guitar In Only 6 Minutes

Have you ever felt like there are things in this world that are so mesmerizing that you can’t fathom the notion of them originating from the Earth? It doesn’t have to be anything scientific, we’re talking about everyday objects that we’ve grown so used to, but we can not explain the way they work for the life of us. One such object is a musical instrument. There is something so captivating about the way such a tiny thing can cause such a grand sound, but how is it made? How can the whoosh of air coming through your lips transform in the tube of the flute to create a high pitched tone? How can a strum of your fingers create the greatest melodies known to man? It all boils down to sound waves. Basically, by using the instrument, we create vibrations that our ears later perceive as sound. It’s nothing but physics and it takes a bit of genius to be able to gather and coordinate this vibrations in order to create those mesmerizing melodies. Creating instruments is an art in itself. It takes talent and understanding of how vibrations work in order to create such a masterpiece. This time lapse shows us how a guitar is handmade in only six minutes. It is easier these days to let machines create these instruments, but it is humbling to know that there are people who still want to maintain this art by practicing it themselves, the same thing ancestors before them had done for centuries.

This Amazing Timelapse Video Shows The Construction Of Shanghai Tower

Towering above this city of 24 million people at 2,073 feet. the Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China and 2nd tallest in the world, only surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Its 128 stories are divided into 9 vertical zones, including retail at the base, offices in the middle, and hotels and observation decks at the top. The super-tall skyscraper features a double-decker elevator that offers the longest single elevator journey in the world at 1,900 feet in under a minute. Designed by international design firm Gensler and owned by the Shanghai city government, it is the tallest of the world's first triple-adjacent super-tall buildings in Pudong, the other two being the Jin Mao Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Centre. Its tiered construction, designed for high energy efficiency, provides nine separate zones divided between office, retail and leisure use. Construction work on the tower began in November 2008 and topped out on 3 August 2013. The exterior was completed in summer 2015, and work was considered complete in September 2015. Although the building was originally scheduled to open to the public in November 2014, the actual public-use date slipped considerably. The observation deck was opened to visitors in July 2016. From April 26, 2017 onwards, the sightseeing deck on the 118th floor is open to the public. The Shanghai Tower incorporates numerous green architecture elements; its owners received certifications from the China Green Building Committee and the U.S. Green Building Council for the building's sustainable design. In 2013, a Gensler spokesman described the tower as "the greenest super high-rise building on earth at this point in time". The building is designed to capture rainwater for internal use, and to recycle a portion of its wastewater.

Snow Artist Makes The Most Astonishing Snow Drawings

Have you ever heard of the world’s first and most famous "Snow Artist"? Enjoy this opportunity to meet the breathtaking artist Simon Beck. Driven by super-human forces and undaunted by the powers of nature, he trudges across sand or through knee-high snow to create massive geometric drawings. Simon Beck produces about 30 snow drawings every winter in the northern hemisphere, mostly in the Alps. He started 10 years ago doing it for fun and now it is his main occupation. ‘When you have a blank piece of paper you draw on it,’ he says. ‘So drawing on a blank snowfall seemed like a natural thing to do.’ In this video, we have the amazing chance to see his talent in which he shares this time lapse with us that is sure to blow your mind. He creates a phenomenal drawing in the snow using a gigantic piece of land. That's so amazing! He makes his drawings using only a compass and by counting paces. Simon wears snowshoes, and by running in them makes a path. He cannot step outside the path since this will disturb the fresh snow. What an incredible talent! He loves doing mathematical shapes and he has favorite shapes too. His favorite are: Koch snowflake, Sierpinski triangle and Mandelbrot set. Beck takes pictures of all his artworks and earns his living by selling high-resolution copies of the photographs. We salute you Mr. Beck because you made something so simple and turned it into a sophisticated and amazing art!

Students In Finland Made A Massive Snow Photography Display1m27s

Students In Finland Made A Massive Snow Photography Display

When snow falls, creativity takes over. Even though the white snow brings cold, it can have its beautiful side. Most of us know how to make a snowman out of the accumulated white cover, but there are some people that are such professionals and know how to use every single snowflake and turn it into an astonishing sculpture. In the middle of January 2015, students from the Kuusamo college at the University of Lapland in North Finland decided to use their skills and go beyond their boundaries . Using their imagination, they created a massive snow photography display. 30 tons of snow and one ton of ice were needed for this creation of art to get its final look. It took five days of hard work, tons of hot cups of tea and maybe even some exercise to warm their hands and bodies so they can stay longer on the freezing temperatures. At the end all of this was totally worth it. The final result will leave you amazed - a long snowy line where nine frozen photographs are being displayed and sculpture installations are filling the university yard. At night time, all of this looks even more beautiful. As you can see in this one-minute time lapse video, these students needed excavators for the snow, scaffolding to make the massive shapes and of course, crafty hands. By doing this big winter photography display they proved themselves in front of their professors and the rest of the world. We give them a well deserved A+! Good job you guys!

Jaw-Dropping Milky Way Timelapse Is Something To Behold1m09s

Jaw-Dropping Milky Way Timelapse Is Something To Behold

Now, whatever you are doing at this moment is not as nearly important. Drop it down, make sure you put this amazing video of the Milky Way on full screen and relax in your chair for at least few minutes. Just as the bright city lights are safely left far away, there, in the great outdoors, the Milky Way begins to become plainly visible up above. The forest is getting softly covered by the pitch-black night sky above and after setting of the sun the sky slowly shows this surreal landscape. You just need to peer deep into the glowing stars , seemingly scattered on this night playground above the head, and take a magical journey of your own imagination. It almost looks outlandish, just like a painting. Meanwhile, shooting stars whiz by, creating the feeling that you are floating in space. The video shown at the top of this page may not be action-packed or brimming with laughter, but it is amazing in its own way. The reason for this is very simple: this is the actual image our pre-industrial ancestors had the privilege to see every night, and all they had to do is raise their heads to the night sky. Nowadays, this is extremely rare to see, except if you are ready to go away in remote areas lacking urban lighting and waiting for a moonless night. So, if you have the chance to do so, pack your bags, take a soft duvet and find the perfect spot. Do not attempt to shoot a stop motion video, just allow yourself to actually experience the moment for yourselves. It is something worth experiencing!
