There are two shots of the Stumpy Point wildfire that has been burning in eastern North Carolina, U.S. for some time now. Most of the shots have wisps of smoke in the air from this fire. The lighthouse is Hatteras Lighthouse, the tallest in North America.

The light streaks you see in the Milky Way shots are shooting stars, no airplanes this time. Shooting stars & meteors happen all the time all over planet Earth; you can’t see them except in the darkest skies. Especially look for them right before dawn (in the film & real life), they seem to increase in frequency at that time.

Motion Control Timelapses

I found a lot of fantastic timelapses on the web and I thought it would be nice to have some of the bests in just one post. This is a selection of the best timelapses of the web. Most of them use motion control equipment like the Kessler Oracle Control System, the DitoGear OmniSlider, the Dynamic Perception DollyEngine or the Motiontimer. If you would like to propose another timelapse let me know and I’ll add it.
