Time-Lapse Captures Aurora Borealis

Henry Baker

Time-lapse photography can be a revelatory tool for helping us see the beauty of movement when the normal speed of time is just too slow. We get to see gigantic, Earth-sized changes as never before. Richard Gottardo's Northern Lights time-lapse is a perfect example. He spent 7 hours in Southern Alberta, recording the remarkable color changes that take place over the Rocky Mountains. I know a winter vacation to a snow-covered mountain doesn't sound incredibly ideal, but if this is something you can see in all its glory, albeit not at this speed, that's very enticing.
