Sunrise From Granville Street Bridge
This is one of the first timelapses where I wish I captured a few more frames.

519 frames, starting at 6:28am and running to 7:54. Sunrise was at 7:34am. The interval was 10 seconds - it started at f9, 8 seconds and ended at f22, 0.3 of a second. I didn't get the time down fast enough so some of the frames were at f22 but wanted to be more closed.

You can see some flickers at the start on the right hand side. That is flare from cars on the bridge. There is quite a bit of shaking when buses go over the expansion joints in the bridge - surprisingly that didn't show up.

Rainbow At Pitt Addington Marsh
236 frames. The interval is 1 second making this roughly 30 times faster than real time. It was shot at 34mm. The exposure was f7.1 at 1/200th of a second. Started at 2:42:35PM, finished at 2:46:30PM because people started walking up the blind which caused the building to shake.

Sunrise On Canda Place
551 frames with a 12 second interval. The lens was at 28mm. Started at 6:21:23am with a 10 second exposure at f10. Ended at 8:11:36am at 1/4 of a second, f18. Underexposed 2 stops.

The ratio of this timelapse is a problem - too much is a narrow band in the middle. There is very little foreground interest other than a single boat that went to the gas station and a bunch of ducks that came through.

This was shot from the seawall right next to the 9 o'clock gun.

North Over Green Lake
I wasn't expecting Aurora Borealis - that is more of a spring/fall thing. Turns out, there was some that night. Also notable in this timelapse - you can see the Andromeda Galaxy. This timelapse was the first time I saw it. I'm not sure I saw it in real life - the camera is more sensitive than I am.
That is highway 99 across the lake and a train lights up the other side of the lake. I was standing on a dock, but it was firmly fixed - me moving didn't cause it to move.

Olympic Village Sunset And Moon Rise
This is the fill images shot at 28mm.
Photography for this sequence started at 6:59pm and lasted 929 frames (roughly every 8 seconds) until 9:02pm. As the sun fell, the exposure the moon became over exposed.

Exposure started at f22, 1/400th of a second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)
Exposure ended at f5.6, 1.3 seconds, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)

In post, I brighten the image, but keep the whites and highlights down. If you expose correctly, you generally get blown out skies and highlights.

Moonrise Over Olympic Village
This is a pretty tight crop out of images shot at 28mm.
Photography for this sequence started at 7:42pm and lasted 242 frames (roughly every 8 seconds) until 8:14pm. As the sun fell, the exposure the moon became over exposed.
Exposure started at f8, 1/400th of a second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)
Exposure ended at f7.1, 1/13th of second, ISO 400 (under exposed by 2 stops)

Sunset At Fishermans Wharf
This turned out to be more tricky that I was expecting. This was 998 frames starting at 7:01pm on April 19th (1/400 of a second at f11), ending at 9:14pm (5 second exposure at f5). It was shot at 28mm. The camera is in shutter priority and I drop the shutter time in half again and again as the lighting gets dark.

The tricky part was that I was on a floating dock and I didn't realize at the time, but every time I moved, the dock shifted. I used Fiji to register the images, but my Mac only have enough RAM (16GB) to do 1/3 of the video at a time.

Ferry Wharf At Granville Island
This dock is normally quite busy with sea bus customers, but with Covid, that is all shut down. I started taking photos at 7:23pm (1/100 at f20) and ended 621 frames later at 8:46pm (2.5 seconds at f10).
The dock is so large that me walking around didn't change the camera pointing angle.

Vancouver From Burrard Dock Pier
This was shot at 42mm. I took a photo every 10 seconds from 6:28am to 8:18am - 664 frames. Exposure started at f5.6 8 second (under exposed 1 and 2/3rds stops) and ended at f14, 1/50th of a second. I like to under expose and bring it up in post so that I can keep detail in the bright areas.

Sunrise At Jerhicho Pier
This is 438 Photos taken 11 seconds apart. I started at 6:20am and sunrise was at 7:37am. The previous week I went to Jericho to photograph birds and noticed a great sunrise. This week the sunrise was windy but just ho-hum light. That said, I did see some nice shore birds this week which I didn't see last week. Lens was set to 40mm if it helps.

Milky Way From Whytecliff Park
90 frames x 30 seconds each is roughly 45 minutes of tripod time. I first started shooting at 13 second exposures and it took me a few minutes to realize my mistake (those frames were discarded). The camera wasn't very level when I shot it (hard to get right when so much of the frame is black) so these images are cropped.

How To Make Campfire
594 frames, shot f10 1/40th of a second at iso 800 for the whole thing. The photos are taken every 2 seconds so this timelapse runs from 5:47pm to 6:06pm.

Sunset On Fraser Lake
There is a train on the far side of the lake near the end. This is 366 shots, 15 seconds apart. It started at f18 and 1/100th of a second and dropped down to f5 and 2.5 second exposures.

Moonrise On Sunshine Coast
675 images, taken 10 seconds apart. First photo was 6:59pm, Last photo was at 8:51pm. This sequence had a LOT of problems with flickering. I used LRTimelapse to clean up the exposure and then used the three frame blend trick and I still had flickering.

Saiwash Rock Sunset
You can see the tide is going out over the course of this video. There was a Great Blue Heron fishing from the rock but it did eventually fly away.
354 pictures, taken between 9:03pm and 10:34pm, roughly every 16 seconds.

Fort Langley Campfire At Sunset
394 Frames. The exposure kind of falls apart at the end so I had to do the blend two frames trick to stop the flickering.

Second Night Campfire
642 Frames - started at roughly 1/4 of a second every 10 seconds, ended at 8 seconds every 10 seconds. I used silent mode that prevent you from seeing the exposure as it shoots (but is much quieter. I had to change the exposure on most of the frames to get the exposure to run smoothly and even then it was a bit of a mess.

Most of the kids are from the other tent's.
