The Beauty of Namibian Nights in Timelapse Motion

It took Marsel van Oosten two years and 16,000 images to create a timelapse video that captures the ineffable beauty of Namibian Nights. Shot with Nikon D3, D3s and D4 cameras, the film highlights van Oosten’s favorite sites in Namibia — “the fairytale-like quivertrees and the eery, dead camelthorn trees in Deadvlei.” For each second of video, 30 photographs were taken. Namibian Nights won First Prize in the 2012 Travel Photographer of The Year Awards.

    Wow, this is amazingly gorgeous. It’s staggering to think that two years of work went into a 1 min video – that’s dedication.

    During our stay in Namibia in July 2012, my husband and I lay on our lanai and watched this incredible night sky. This film captures that sight well, but nothing captures the entire experience like being there.
