Incredibly Beautiful 10K Dusk to Dawn Timelapse of Lake Dora

Here is one of the most technically challenging timelapse sequences I’ve ever seen. Also one of the most beautiful ones.

The reason for the technical challenge is that this is a 5-camera-10K-day-to-night timelapse. Photographer Colin Legg shot the timelapse over 11 days and nights in dry bed Lake Dora, Australia.

Resulting raw data was over 111,000 individual photographs that were stitched together, and then sequenced to create a timelapse for the movie In Saturn’s Rings which is a 10K IMAX movie about space. (Which also explains why the movie is in a half dome format).

Here is a photo of the rig in action taken by the photographer, Colin Legg:

In Saturn’s Rings is expected to be released in early 2014 and displayed on massive screens and concert-level surround systems to audiences in giant screen institutions, IMAX® theaters, fulldome planetariums, museums and select 4k digital cinemas
