Jökulsárlón Timelapse

As I have mentioned before I have really enjoyed my trips to Iceland andInspired by Iceland is a great project to promote the wonders of the country. It has a great website with excellent quality webcams that enable full screen viewing of three of Iceland’s landmarks: Reykjavik, Gullfoss and Jökulsárlón. My favourite is Jökulsárlón, often known as Iceland’s glacier lagoon. Just for fun I set about creating a time-lapse using screen shots from the webcam. The video below is the outcome of this (best viewed full-screen or on Vimeo). I took a screen shot of the webcam image every minute for 24hours (starting at 1900 hours). The images were then processed to convert them from colour to black and white and I also added some blurring around the top and bottom of each frame to create a tilt-shift effect. William Cheshire kindly provided the music.
