Undiscovered Skies

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

    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?

    Lovely motion of the' time-lapse clouds' ....very nicely enhanced by the inclusion of the 'texture magic' ...and the beautiful music goes perfectly with the mood ! Thank you, Katrin and Julian :-)

  • Peter Funnell 3y

    A fascinating video Katrin.
    Excellent collaboration :)
  • Katrin Shumakov 3y

    YYZDez Thank you!
    Carla Carvalho Tomás 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 ! :-)
    october blue Thank you Scott for your beautiful words!
    Brian 104 Thank you Brian!
    Peter Funnell Hi Peter - thanks! :-)
  • Scott Pitocco 3y

    Nicely done. the music track is on point!
  • Hai Nguyen 3y

    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!
  • Katrin Shumakov 3y

    Scott Pitocco Thank you! Glad you appreciate the music too!

    Hai Nguyen 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!
