Undiscovered Skies

Newer Older

This is quite a Summer Solstice themed weekend in my stream... It was somewhat mystic day, on June 21, marked by the highly desired thunderstorm passion here for us... As winds were blowing and clouds were approaching from the west-north, turning Toronto-cityscapes into grey mode, I looked at the mysterious sky canvas through the camera for 20+ min and then turned this motion picture into a 90-sec time-lapse :-)

The final time-lapse video is another collaboration with my husband who helped me with all the video processing matters in "After Effects", so I could cast my texture magic on it (& add some secret elements :-), and also he helped with his great music! Thank you, Julian Ray! :-)

The music piece used here is "Terra Incognita" from Julian's album "Evolution". You may listen to the full composition in good quality at julianray.bandcamp.com/track/terra-incognita

**sirop, BossBob50, Bev Morgan, and 7 other people added this video to their favorites.

    Fantastic. Congrats on you and your husband for such a piece of art.
    Love the fact that "your texture", wich is like your trade, is in the video, The surprise elements were a nice plus, also :-)
    About the music, I like your husband's work. Btw, "Terra incognita", isn't it portuguese?

    Thank you!
    Hey Carla - thanks a lot for your impressions! I do believe "Terra incognita" is Latin for "unknown land"... but Portuguese is quite close I think, ...it's your natural language, so you say me ! :-)
    Thank you Scott for your beautiful words!
    Thank you Brian!
    Hi Peter - thanks! :-)

    Definitely a joy to watch. Such a calm, peaceful and warm video indeed.

    You really reminded some of us that tend to take everything for granted including our beautiful sky. Landscape photography allow me to understand the beauty of the earth. Which why most of the times I tend to arrive at the scene early to enjoy the surrounding first before I concentrate on the shot.

    Thanks sharing Kat!

    Thank you! Glad you appreciate the music too!

    Hello Hai! Yes, long time tno see. Thank you for your visit and wonderful impressions, and thoughts - much appreciated! Yes, you are right there is so much beauty around us , on earth and in the skies as well, just waiting us to notice it... I like how you approach to your landscapes, Hai - it's a good practice to savour the scene, to absorb its spirit before taking shots. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend!
