Just when I thought I had seen all the time lapses I needed to see, Daniel Dragon Films surprises me with this stunningly beautiful film of the Outer Banks. Speechless.
Most of the shots in the video have “wisps of smoke” from the fire, which adds to some interesting texture. There are a few shots of the night sky behind a light house (pictured above) which are quite impressive. The light of the lighthouse is continuous and the shots move so quickly together that you can’t see the normal revolution of the light. Lowe also captures fantastic shots of the Milky Way Galaxy.
