Not sure this qualifies as a 'landscape' per se, but I think it turned out well enough to show here. :) Everyone is invited to post images with snow in them.  ;) Let's make this the photochallenge for the week.

Goat tunnels.  They did have a 3+ ft deep path to one of their houses, the snow was higher than the door on the other.  We kept knocking snow off the Costco Carport so they had a place ot stand and eat during the day.

I happened to have my camera at work today, and it started to snow.  So I propped it on the ledge of my office window (no tripod), and made a timelapse:

No particular artistic value, but it does go with the theme of this thread.

Very interesting bvukich.  I have seen a few timelaps lately on the forum and I really like this.  How does one go about creating a timelaps?  Do you use the video mode or do you take a photo every "x" minutes and stitch them in a video after?  For the later, what tool is used for this?

Sorry this is really interesting but not sure how to proceed...thanks for the help.

Sorry this is really interesting but not sure how to proceed...thanks for the help.

For this particular time lapse, it was a still photo every minute, for six hours. Then I used two linux (also available for macs) commands.  "convert" to pad, scale, and crop the images to 1920x1080 (and then re-done at 4096x2304).  Then "mencoder" to convert that series of images to an mjpeg video.  I initially encoded them in mpeg4, but it looked like garbage, and for a 12 second video, file size doesn't really matter.  Plus I knew it was going to get transcoded when uploading to Youtube anyhow, so may as well give the highest quality input.

I can start a new thread with precise commands, and explanations if you would like. (in fact, I think I will)

Interesting.  I've never tried time lapse photography or thought about how to turn one into a video.  I can easily do the timelapse part using my Canon remote, but editing it into a video clip may be interesting.


Thanks for sharing.

We haven't had any snow yet this winter (lots of wind and rain though), but here's a couple from last winter.
