After seeing the hundredth time-lapse, it can become a little difficult to appreciate the incredible sight of an aurora creeping over hills in Iceland. Do many of us suffer from "art fatigue" where seeing so much great work online can make us a little numb to incredible sights? I admit this was the case for me until I saw this time-lapse from JeffHK.
Of course, art is subjective and each individual may react differently depending on the piece. I for one, however, find this time-lapse to be incredibly inspiring, watching the "tiny" vessel floating on the vast ocean as the world changes around it. My favorite moments were seeing the lightning storms at night with shooting stars flying across the frame. At certain moments in the video, it almost seems to me like the clouds are within arms reach.
The equipment that JeffHK used to shoot this time-lapse was the Nikon D750 and the Rokinon 12mm f/2.8 lens. All in all, it took 30 days 80,000 images to create this time-lapse. JeffHK may need to start looking at replacing his shutter soon.
I'd love to know if there are any works of art that you've seen recently that have inspired you or made you feel the need to create something yourself.
