Namibian Nights – Stunning Deadvlei Time-Lapse

We have featured the amazing dead trees of the Namibian desert at Deadvlei before – and what an amazing place it truly is. Yet Marsel van Oosten has come up with something quite extraordinary here. He has already created the most extensive and most popular night photography portfolio of Namibia on this planet and here he takes it to the next level.  The footage has been edited by Daniella Sibbing and together they make Squiver.

This isn’t just time-lapse photography. Essentially it involves moving the camera while still shooting at a speed normally associated with timelapse. It’s a fairly new technique and one that has been evolving recently. As you can see when you watch the video above the results can be astonishing.
