Nocturnal – Scenes of the Southern Night, Western Australia and Chile, by Colin Legg, is a beautiful time lapse video, which won 1st place in the best animation category of the 2012 David Malin awards. Here’s what the judges thought of it:
“A beautiful twilight, a variety of moonset and moonrises Orographic clouds, the Southern Cross rising majestically with star colours intact, Comet Lovejoy, the decaying debris trail from a meteor, distant lightning on the horizon, a green sky, the Magellanic Clouds, the Milky Way, amazing projections of the Bungle Bungles and some very elegant and well thought out tracking and panning movements!“
Rightly deserved! An amazing time lapse video. Onwards!
