Photographers capture nature's beauty in time lapse video

Photo from Stephanie Campbell video: "The Wilds of the Cascades"

Photographers have been out in force this past year to capture some of nature's beauty, and as proof, here are three time lapse videos I've come across recently that I wanted to share with you all.

First up is an intricate look at lightning in Dustin Farrell's excellent new video he titled: "Transient". As he chased storms across the nation last year, he shot video at the incredible rate of 1,000 frames per second -- whereas typical video plays at 30 frames per second The high frame rate allows a unique look at how lightning bolts propagate across the sky.

"My respect and admiration for storm chasers became even stronger this year," he wrote on his Vimeo page showcasing the video:

Heading to more calmer pastures, local photographer Stephanie Campbell has released her second short film "The Wilds of the Cascades". It features footage she's taken over the past year!

It's a true family project. Her sister Rachel wrote the song that accompanies the film.

And finally, we finish with a local staple of the blog -- Meg McDonald with Wild Northwest Beauty Photography who first caputred the Super Moon/Wolf Moon that kicked off 2018:

She also compiled some of the best of her best time lapse videos of the past year into one handy video she titled "Into the Night" which feature some of her favorite nighttime videos from her treks into the mountains:
