This timelapse is called Anchorage By Winter, and was created by Zan Butler on Vimeo. It is 00:03:57 long. The last time we checked (on March 31st, 2015), it had around 280,000 plays on Vimeo


So this is what I did over this past winter when I was not making people coffee.
It’s all time-lapse footage shot in and around Anchorage, Alaska, with the emphasis on the nature around the city rather then on the people and buildings. This is a collection of the nicer stuff I shot of the northern lights, stars, sunset, and the tide. All of this was shot between October 2011 and April 2012.

The music is Aston’s Classical Cover of the song You’ve Got The Love by Florence & The Machine.
Music used with the bands permission. : )

Equipment used:
Canon 5D Mark II
Canon Rebel xTi (modified to full spectrum)
Canon EF 24 – 105 mm
Sigma DC 18 – 200 mm
Sigma 8mm EX DG Fisheye (a thoroughly epic lens)
Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly (kinda beyond epic)
Orion TeleTrack AZ-G Mount (really good for astrophotography)
Motorcycle and Car batteries from my locale battery store
And a lot of wires that connect everything together.

Adobe Bridge CS4 and CS5
Adobe Photoshop CS4
Adobe Lightroom 3
LRTimelapse (pretty much the most amazing software ever)
Hugin (for unwrapping the 8mm shots)
Final Cut Pro 5.1.4 (for making the stills move)

(Please note that the colours look different (like a lot) on different screens. The colours here look desaturated from the original file on my screen. But the colours look like the original on other screens, but not all, I’m not sure why.)
