July 23rd was a particularly active day for the skies in our area. I set my camera in the wheat field across the road from our home and let it record a couple of hours.
My favorite part of this video is watching the development of clouds; seemingly out of thin air. I also think it’s cool to see the sun brighten the wheat field when it breaks through an opening in the clouds.
This video condenses two hours of real-time video into about two minutes.

This is a timelapse video of a sunrise over rural Kewaunee County, WI. This sunrise was captured behind my house on July 20, 2017. I began recording in the dark of dawn; before sunrise.
It was a windy morning which, as you can see, gave a lot of motion to lower level clouds. I put the camera on a tripod behind my house to protect it from shaking by the wind. One minute of video represents an hour of actual time.
I recently picked up an inexpensive video camera, in hopes of using it to for capture timelapse photography. It’s a different genre of art and I have a lot to learn.
