Cherry Blossum With City Sunset
This was my second shot at this sunset. I repositioned so I could get the whole tree in the shot rather than just a branch. I didn't bring quite so wide of a lens.

This is 745 frames, Starting at 7:39pm and ending at 9:16pm. I think sunset was about 8:15. The interval was 8 seconds and I shot in aperture priority mode because I finally figured out how to set my camera to limit the longest exposure in A mode until it starts increasing the sensitivity. The photos started at f/8.0, 1/160th of a second at ISO 100 (exposure is set to under exposed by 2 stops) and it ends at f/8.0, 6 seconds, ISO 160 (still under exposed by 2 stops)
I have manually photoshopped out people walking in front of the camera and a few birds.

Sunset With Cherry Blossom
I started at 7:03pm at f18 at 1/160th of a second (in shutter priority mode) and ended at 625 frames later at 8:47pm at f6.3 and 6 second exposures. The interval was every every 10 seconds. I haven't removed people from this sequence.

Foggy Downtown Sunset
This is 656 frames from 4:01pm until 5:50pm. Exposure at the start was f8 at 1/50th of a second, at end was f8, 4 seconds. The photos are take every 10 second. No stabilization as the camera was on a tripod on solid ground (just outside of the Granville Island Public Market).

This is one of the easiest timelapses ever - the exposure is almost linear (the camera made the correct and consistent guesses) and no stabilization required.

Fog downtown is pretty rare - it usually happens when we transition from wet weather to cold weather in winter.

Granville Street Sunrise
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.

Sunrise On Canda Place
551 frames with a 12 second interval. I started at 6:21am, f10, 10 second exposures and ended at 8:11am, f18, 1/4 second exposures and I don't think I went far enough.

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.

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.

Fireworks Time Lapse From Burrard Bridge
This was tricky. I had the camera in shutter speed priority until the fireworks started and then switched to manual mode to get a reasonable exposure.

This is 1071 frames shot 6 second apart for 107 minutes or 1 hour and 47 minutes. It is played back at 15 fps so it isn't all flashes and the boats don't look crazy fast. I wanted to take more photos after so you could see the rush of boats come back but a little girl needed to go pee.

Waiting For Fireworks
I took a photo every 30 seconds for about an hour and a half. I changed the exposure 4 times and then fixed the exposure in post.

Waiting For The Northern Lights
The dust spots on the sensor are kind of painful.

Siwash Rock Making Star Trails
This is a 100 image, 30 seconds an image time lapse. I was planning on stacking them and lightening them to get star trails but the clouds flying by made that much harder than I anticipated.

This is a 15 frames per second video.

Thunderstorm Over Vancouver
I really like that you can see the stars at the top of the frame for roughly half of the movie. This is roughly 200 frames at 20seconds each (every 21 seconds) for a little over an hour of time. The camera ran out of battery power as it wasn't fully charged when it started.

Clouds Rolling Over Downtown From Cypress
This is 215 images at 10 seconds each - roughly 35 minutes elapsed. I had to stop because the exposure what out of range - I could no longer take 10 seconds exposures.

The exposure was shot auto and then corrected in post which wasn't easy. There is some motion in the tripod - I think got warmer or I touched it a bit. I corrected the motion in post. I have blended the images to make this a 45fps video and to try and remove some of the residual brightness flickering.
