Video of the Day: Time-Lapse From Australia's Southern Coast

More

Alex Cherney, a software developer based in Melbourne, Australia, fell in love with taking long-exposure photographs of the night sky at a star party in August 2009. It was there that he took his first shot in that style, according to the description of a Vimeo video that Cherney created using one and a half years worth of work inspired by that late summer night. "I was so thrilled with the results that I dedicated most moonless weekends since then to photographing two things I love the most in nature -- the night sky and the Ocean," he wrote.

After six long nights on the coast of southern Australia and 31 hours of shooting long-exposure photographs, Cherney turned his work into the time-lapse video embedded below. "Taking [a] series of images and combining them into a time lapse video sequence made it even more interested," Cherney wrote. "I have since experimented with all-night time lapses, panning motion, etc. But most importantly I've enjoyed the journey immensely."
