Pentax K1 records Donegal in Timelapse

Posted 09/02/2023 - 21:15 Link
A new film comprising 10,500 individual photographs was taken over 5 years in all seasons to capture and showcase the stunning beauty and varied landscapes of a part of the island of Ireland which is often dubbed 'the forgotten county'. Mostly shot with Pentax K1

Stunning ! Well done.

Wonderful and mesmeric, some of the scenes have almost perfect choreography, hats off to you Sir.

Wonderful. What a beautiful work of art!

I really enjoy the multi-directional movement in many of the scenes, e.g. clouds moving one way, sea in another.

Thanks for all the kind comments, much appreciated. Living in Donegal, which is one of the wettest and windiest parts of Europe, it can be hard to capture timelapses. Capturing sunrises and sunsets can be frustrating as often nothing happens in sky and you have to go back another day.

Wind often wobbles the tripod and ruins the sequence or blurs the frames (sometimes these can be saved using the warp function in Premiere Pro). Moving water (rivers and the sea) can knock the tripod (in the opening sequence I and the tripod were waist deep in the river). Rain and condensation can affect the lens (an umbrella helps sometimes and lens heater at night). People and animals can stray into frame or unwanted reflections and sensor spots show (removed on a frame by frame basis in Lightroom and/or photoshop which takes time when each individual sequence has on average 350 photographs). Flickering can also be a problem because the lens aperture blades don't always close by the same amount on each capture (usually shot with the lens fully open or in many cases I use older Pentax manual lens and set the aperture on the lens then decouple the lens from the camera body).
