260,000 Photos Went Into This Stunning Timelapse of the Pacific Northwest

Photographer John Eklund spent the past year visiting various locations in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, using his camera to document the stunning beauty of places ranging from Crater Lake in Oregon to Mount St. Helens in Washington. He writes,

I am a photographer from Portland, Oregon. I want to share the beautiful NW region through my eyes with time-lapse photography. I choose to shoot locations that appeal to the way I would like to interpret the story of time. Here in the Pacific Northwest, there are endless opportunities to document the magnificence of the world around us. I have discovered that when time is the storyteller, a special kind of truth emerges.

Eklund ended up shooting approximately 260,000 photographs that weighed a whopping 6.3 terabytes. His gear list included a Canon 5D Mark II, two 5D Mark IIIs, a 24mm f/1.4 II, a 16-35mm f/2.8 II, a 24-70mm f/2.8, and a couple tripods and dollies. He says that his secret to creating time-lapse videos is trial and error, having spent “hours upon hours” trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t. We’d say he’s gotten it figured out. Wouldn’t you?
