Icelandic Whale Humping & Killer Time Lapse

26 05 2010

I don’t know if you guys have seen this, but in case you haven’t I strongly suggest you follow the link below to Vimeo and watch this video in HD.  It is without a doubt the best time lapse photography I have ever seen.  The video below is from a guy called Sean Stiegemeir . The music is by an Icelandic artist called Jonsi. I’ve actually listed to some stuff from the band he performs in and I love it.  Now Icelandic music can be a bit…. lets say “strange” (think Bjork).  However I love this the music that is used on this clip and I have bought Jonsi’s album.  Many of you will hate it.  My work colleague calles it “whale humping music” and is ready to throttle me,  however I find it really inspirational and great to play when I’m deep in Photoshop doing some post processing.

So I’d love to hear what you think of the killer timelapse stuff (shot with a motorised dolly that costs less than $1K) and also the “whale humping” music of Jonsi.
