Solar Eclipse Time Lapse. Australia 2012
A time lapse piece showcasing one of natures greatest spectacles - a total eclipse of the sun. Lasting two hours from start to finish, the Northern Queensland coast was plunged into semi-darkness just after sunrise on November 14, 2012 when the moon passed in front of the sun. Totality lasted for two full minutes, with the morning clouds parting just long enough for those at Palm Cove to witness the entire event. We used multiple cameras, with multiple and varying techniques, including a solar tracking device to keep the sun relatively steady for the moment of totality.
