Unless you’ve been living in a deep, dark cave… You may have noticed that there is a lot of cool stuff going on out there. So, we thought it was high-time we started rounding up some of our faves each Friday. Every month, we’ll be choosing a theme that fits with the Osprey lifestyle. Since we’re still in the full swing of winter, we decided to pay homage by picking “snow” for our February theme. Welcome to the Osprey Friday Round-Up!
Seems like we’re all about the timelapses this week. And not just regular timelapses; year-long ones. On Tuesday we featured The Longest Way, a photo documentation of one man’s year in China. We put the question to our Facebook community asking them what they would choose to capture for an entire year if they could only pick one thing, which got us everything from birds to rail systems.
Someone else suggested snow, which got us thinking about this video: One Year in 2 Minutes. This is the third year that Eirik Solheim has documented the seasonal shifts of his back yard. You may have already seen one of his previous videos, but beyond the beauty and simplicity of this clip, it’s interesting to know how he went about making it. It’s no easy set up: Eirik hooked his SLR up to his computer and software that allowed him to take an image every 30 minutes for an entire year.
And because it’s in Norway, there’s plenty of snow.
