This timelapse was shot on the way home from a day trip to Flagstaff to take some photos of the fall colors in October 2017. I did not plan on shooting a timelapse, but when I pulled over and saw the sky it was a perfect opportunity. This was shot on two cameras--the Nikon D750 with a 20mm f/1.8 lens, and a Nikon D500 with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens.


I originally set this up on my veranda to shoot a timelapse of the stars rotating around the North Star. There was quite a bit of cloud cover, which ended up being a blessing in disguise. The streaks of light are not falling stars. Those are flights landing at Deer Valley Airport.  The timelapse was shot with a Nikon D750 and a 20mm f/1.8 lens.

A summer storm rolling in over Phoenix. The timelapse was shot from the Phoenix Mountain Preserve with a Nikon D750 and a 70mm f/2.8 lens.

I shot this timelapse in the Summer of 2018 at one of my favorite locations in the desert near Lake Pleasant. Shot with a Nikon D500 with a Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 lens, which is reason for the distortion of the saguaros.
