Going to Sleep [New Timelapse Video]

I have waited for a long time to show you the finished result of my numerous shootings in the local hills and mountains around Mostar. It took me many evenings to complete this video. It shows a day as it comes to an end, and how the busy winds slow down and come to peace. It also depicts the colorful transition into the sunset, and the blue hour, when the most vibrant colors of nature show their face.

If you are interested in a behind the scenes look of this timelapse video, click here to view yesterdays post in which I showed some making-of images.

Scroll down for the video!

Without further ado, here is the complete new timelapse video "Going to Sleep". Enjoy!
Please make sure to view it in Full 1080p HD and Full Screen for a maximum effect.




There are a lot of details in the video, and you can watch it actually a couple of times, and notice new things. An example: can you spot the sheep in the fields during one camera pan?

Thank you all for visiting. I really hope that you have enjoyed the video, and I hope to make more for you in the future.

  1. Excellent Mersad, well worth all the effort.
    Did you shoot in aperture priority or full manual?

    1. All photos were shot in manual mode.

    2. No aperture flicker. Brilliant.
      I don't get it now as I spent £35.00p on and old Canon manual lens. Did you get rid of it in AE? Maybe you are just better at it than I am and never had the problem. What interval did you shoot at? Come on spill the beans, I'm interested in doing a dusk till dawn video. I want the star trails next and will have to shoot and blend those separately. I have lots of cloud ones but yours are better. Breaking waves are annoying. The tide flowing up the beach would be good.
      I'll get back on the job I really like time lapse.

    3. I really have no special tricks. I think that the flicker comes in when the sky is overcast. But that is just a theory of mine. I had some flicker in my previous timelapse (on the 600th post) and I shot that one on a rainy overcast day. I do have a plug in for after effects that gets rid of the flicker, but I did not use it in this project. I mostly shot at an interval of 3 seconds.

  9. That's pretty cool! I like the fact you incorparated some movement of the camera and some zoom in and out into the time lapse. It makes it a lot more interesting.

  10. Perfekt lieber Mersad!!! Ein supertolles Video hast du davon gemacht und es gibt wirklich sehr viel zu entdecken. Ich fand es so toll (Sonnenuntergang/Röte/näher an den Himmel gezoom) als man da auf die kleinen Wolken auf der linken Seite geschaut hat. Das sieht fast aus wie Delfine die aus dem Meer kurz auftauchen und wieder verschwinden.

    Mein Respekt für diese Arbeit die sich echt gelohnt hat.

    Herzliche Abendgrüsse

    1. Die Wolkenformationen finde ich auch am besten da sich jeder in ihnen etwas anderes hineininterpretieren kann. Danke für deinen lieben Komentar.

  11. Wow a fantastic piece of art. I agree with all the above comments. All the elements you used are there for sure. Not sure about my blog. I changed it and not sure folks can find me. http://acreativepieceofmymind.blogspot.com.
    I got no response from FSO last week.

  14. Your time lapse film is most impressive. I have an idea how much work this is as my wife does animation. The colors of your sunset are stunning. Keep up the good work.

  24. Is this real? Looks out of the world. I am sure it takes quite some patience to construct a time lapse video...This is superb. Will be seeing more from you.

    Great work, Mersad!

  26. Oh I watched it twice and went and read the other post. I had no idea of all the work involved, but how worth it. The sky is so dramatic, but I was very taken with the moving grasses too. Really beautiful colors.. I do hope you do more... Michelle from Nature Notes...
