Time Lapse Photography in the White Mountains


Time lapse photography has quickly become an obsession of mine. I want to timelapse everything. I thought at first that anything in time lapse would be interesting, but I’m learning what makes for a dramatic scene and likewise, finding out the lack of certain elements can make for a dull scene. This time of year I feel can be somewhat drab for most photographic pursuits unless one has a keen eye for photography.  I strive to be that type of photographer.

This is the first year of a multi-year time lapse project in the White Mountains. So with things being in it’s infancy, I’m dreaming big, learning alot and having too much fun in the process. Ultimately, this view of Cannon Cliff will be shot several times throughout the year and integrated together. I figure if I can make this grey, snowless December a little interesting to view, then the other seasons may be visually pleasing.  You’ll be viewing the entire sequence in which only certain clips will be used. But I don’t want to give away too much just yet!

Photography, specifically the hunt to capture unique shots has been a passion of mine alongside climbing.  The two blend very well together.  It leaves me thrilled to be apart of the NEice team, where that exact passion has a good home.
