Welcome to The Timelapse Photographer

The site is in its infancy, and there is little content outside of the video library (from which a random pick is shown below). As the links on the right indicate the plan is to host tutorials on timelapse photography from shooting to post processing and perhaps eventually a store with high quality/resolution footage. Until then, contact me if you're interested in obtaining any of the footage in high resolution.

I will also be grateful for feedback if you encounter something on the site that doesn't appear to work as intended.
Note about browsers - why this site doesn't look quite so polished in Internet Explorer 8 (or previous).

Aurora and Rockets
Cleary Summit, Alaska Feb 14 2007

The video starts out with a substorm sweeping through before a series of scientific rockets (HEX II experiment) are launched from nearby Poker Flat Research Range. First two test rockets, soon followed by the 4 main rockets releasing (harmless) glowing chemical trails in the ionosphere which allows for tracking of neutral winds. The rockets go to ~185km altitude. The "smoke rings" show that the wind is changing direction with altitude as in an Ekman spiral pattern.
