News Another ‘time-lapse view’ of nature

13 March 2015 Daniel Curtis

The Internet is full of videos that pay homage to the subtle simplicity of the natural world.

And last Friday’s blog proved so popular we’re taking a look at some more environment-based videos.

These are a little more unconventional, but still have the irresistible charm of nature time-lapses.


This canyon video, captured in difficult conditions Down Under, is the perfect example of how professional time-lapse videos can leave you in awe. Deep beneath the surface of the Earth lies hidden wonders – and this edit brings those things to life.

Take a scanner and a colony of ants… and you will have no idea where this is going! François Vautier combined the two – and the results are breathtaking. Watch as – with one scan every week – the scanner turns from a piece of technology into a natural environment. It is a pretty surreal use of this photography technique.

And to finish – a look at the start of a plant’s life cycle. These time-lapses are a dime a dozen, but there is still something pleasing about their simplicity. And this is a great example of it, combined with stop motion.
