These pages implement a form of timelapse photography. They are not quiet what you might expect from timelapse in that:

  • There are only a small number (twelve) of images from each site
  • The images are taken at 90 minute intervals
  • The camera is hand-held, so the images are not quite identical.

The purpose of this project is to capture the changing light during a day. The pictures are all taken on the summer solstice, starting at 04:30 and repeating every 90 minutes up to 21:00. The sites choosen give views facing East, North and West to ensure I captured the dawn, dusk, and midday sky.

I have done this now for two years 2018 and 2019 at locations around the village where I live. If I am being honest, the result are not as good as I had hoped. All the pictures do show the changing lights, but to get a real sense of change you need lots of objects producing lots of shadows.

The site that works best is Haslingfield Church 2018. That frame has three grave stones in the fore-ground whose shadows give a sun-dial effect, highligthing the changing day. In addition the stonework of the church changes throughout the day as the angle of sun moves round.
