Crater Lake: A Time Lapse.
This video was created by photographing 300 digital images with a Nikon D5300. The camera was set to record one image every nine seconds. I choose the interval based on watching the subject, in this case the clouds, move across the sky.
I enjoy time lapse photography as it allows me to set up my camera and then enjoy the view, talk to visitors on the rim at Crater Lake and other locations.
