Peddocks Island Time Lapses

I recently upgraded to a camera that has all the bells and whistles. I still haven’t read the manual but I was playing around with it and noticed that one of the video modes is time lapse. I played around with it a bit over the weekend and took some videos. I didn’t have a tripod so you watch these pretend that you are sitting or laying down on the beach.

Attempt #1

First time lapse! Interval not set correctly but I was so pleased with myself that I managed to take a time lapse. There was a Ring-billed Gull swimming around but you can’t really tell.

Attempt #2

View from the western end of Peddocks. A group of REI kayakers pass by towards the end.

Attempt #3

I was trying to capture the boat traffic at the end of the day. This is about 5:00 pm to 5:30 pm looking at Pemberton Point from Peddocks. I really like the clouds rolling in.

Attempt #4

Starting to get the hang of this. The interval is better but the horizon line is not level and I should have let it run for longer. Boston skyline line in the background is pretty.

Attempt #5

Interval too fast and the battery died about halfway in to this.

Attempt #6

Shot this one while waiting for the boat. The geese wander away but I really liked the motion of the grass.

I am happy with my first attempts. I am going to do a little more reading up on time lapse techniques
