New Zealand Time Lapse Compilation

11299 of photos, 2500km+ of journey, 550GB of files, 13 days, 1 photographer.

Here you go friends and fans – the time lapse compilation of my recent solo photo hunt trip to the South Island of New Zealand.

Started off at Christchurch. Made my way to Lake Tekapo; to be greeted by heavy winds. At Mount Cook, it rained for 24 hours. Did my Hooker Valley trekking 2 times in the rain.

In Wanaka, the autumn colors were brilliant. And in Queenstown, went up to the top to see the city lights up after dark. Driving 30km in the dark to see the willows of Glenorchy was a great idea.

Camped at Cascade Creek before heading to Milford Sound the next day. 48 hours of no communication with the outside world, I was glad to be back in Te Anau and captured a colorful sunset. Made my way to Kaka Point and hiked 1km in the dark to see the Milky way on top of Nugget Point Lighthouse.

Decided to go up and see the sun goes down on the city of Dunedin. And changed my itinerary to make sure I repeat Mount Cook again. Alhamdulillah, it was a great weather to hike Hooker Valley track for 3rd and 4th time.

Kuala Lumpur – Day to night Time Lapse

Hello.

I decided to take a 1 night break by checking into Regalia Residence Kuala Lumpur since I have been wanting to shoot and time lapse the city from their rooftop swimming pool. It is a sunrise location but if the weather is good enough, the location is also good for sunset.

I set up my D800 at 6.15pm and shot around 999 shots for this particular time lapse. The shots later were post processed in Adobe Lightroom, LRTimelapse and Adobe After Effect CC.

Rolling Clouds & Sunrise Time Lapse – Mount Kinabalu, Sabah

I was in Sabah back in 2014 with few friends for a weekend getaway. We went up to Mount Kinabalu Holiday Camp near the town of Ranau, about 3 hours away for Kota Kinabalu.

The following morning we witnessed the majestic sun rises up amongst the mountains with the clouds rolling in. I set up my camera to capture a 10 second time lapse as you can see from the video below.

After that, we headed back to our campsite and breakfast, we went out for another time lapse session. This time, I captured the clouds dancing around Mount Kinabalu

Reflection of a snow capped mountain – Highland, Scotland

I had the opportunity to drive from Glasgow to the Isle of Skye earlier this year. Although it was a 24 hour visit and it was not a pure photography trip, I couldn’t resist to stop the car at few places to capture the scenery. And because of this, the normal 4 hours trip became 6 hours.

The scenery above was captured near the town of Dornie. The reflection was not a perfect one but nevertheless, it was a majestic scenery. I used my 50mm lens with my Nikon D800 to get this image and the images below was captured with my iPhone 5.

I would love to come back to the Highlands of Scotland in the near future, preferably during spring and alone with my camera and tripod.

As usual, the photo above is available for purchase. Contact me for further details.
