This time-lapse, shot by photographer Bevan Percival on New Zealand’s North Island, has to be one of the most beautiful we’ve ever shared.

Being a photographer for the National Geographic opens the door to all kinds of photo opportunities that other photographers would die for. For a Nat Geo story on “The Power of Light”, photographer (and now blogger) Joe McNally climbed to the very tip of the Empire State Building to capture a stunning wide angle photograph of the antenna light bulb being changed.

Tor Even Mathisen created this stunning timelapse video of the aurora borealis over Tromsø, Norway, shooting the still frames with a Canon 5D Mark II and 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. The individual frames captured are beautiful in themselves, but the result of combining them into a timelapse video is breathtaking.
Alex Roman, the genius behind the breathtaking “The Third & The Seventh“, recently created this short commercial spot for Grupo Cosentino. It’s certainly stunning, but here’s the kicker: it’s completely computer generated, created by two people over the course of two and a half months.
Here’s a stunning time-lapse video by Dan Eckert shot in the California and Arizona deserts. Aside from the fact that seeing the night sky spin in time-lapse is usually pretty darn cool, Eckert employs some interesting techniques that we haven’t come across before.
For example, in one shot Eckert paced across the desert, aiming at a particular mountain in the horizon and snapping a single photograph every time he took a step. If you have a few minutes, this’ll definitely make for a relaxing and awe-inspiring break.
