Breathtaking Time-Lapse Shot Over Six Months on New Zealand’s North Island


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. Shot over the course of six months using a Canon 5D Mark II, various lenses, and a Dynamic Perception 6′ Stage Zero motorized dolly, it will keep your eyes glued to the screen all five minutes and fifty-nine seconds.


In keeping with the stunning visuals, Percival’s description isn’t about the gear he used or even the places he went. It’s about what inspires him to do what he does and how it has impacted him:

I’m driven by chasing fleeting moments of dramatic light on beautiful landscapes and also capturing the night sky and milky way in all its glory is a real buzz. Not to mention curling up out under the stars beside all the gear for nights at a time catching some sleep here and there between checking the gear, changing batteries and staring up into eternity with spectacular meteors burning up in the cosmic shore out of the corner of your eye.
