The order of the Moon and of the stars

Thus saith the Lord, who giveth the sun for the light of the day, the order of the moon and of the stars, for the light of the night: who stirreth up the sea, and the waves thereof roar, the Lord of hosts is his name. – Jeremiah 31:35

    I have followed the work of Dustin Farrell for a couple of years now. He is known for his time lapsed landscape videos. He does some other fascinating visuals. He’s on Twitter so when something new comes out you can see it. Look at the “Landscapes” series from his Vimeo page.

    I’m glad to have seen this video here which shows how that odd movement effect is achieved. We know the sky is “moving”, but I didn’t understand how the camera was moving so smoothly. Now we know.
