This time lapse video by Ian Provo from the summer of 2010 has plenty of fantastic cloud sequences. Of particular interest are the lapping wave effects of some Stratocumulus clouds, which are a great reminder that the atmosphere above us is an ocean of air, which contains waves similar to those in the oceans of water around us. Most of the time, these waves of air are unseen by us – except when they are rendered visible by their effect on the glorious clouds.
During the summer of 2010, I began shooting time lapses. Its a pretty neat form of cinematography thats slowly becoming an obsession of mine. While the rewards are sometimes quite nice, it can be very time consuming and frustrating, particularly during the learning stage. They seem to give you a perspective on the landscape that you could never get otherwise. All the clips in this piece were shot with a Canon 5D Mark II, on various camping, fishing, and skiing trips in Utah, Colorado, and Chile.
