Ben Lean shot those pictures in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during March/April 2011 and sequenced them into a timelapse.

Oh, little prince! Bit by bit I came to understand the secrets of your sad little life… For a long time you had found your only entertainment in the quiet pleasure of looking at the sunset. I learned that new detail on the morning of the fourth day, when you said to me:
“I am very fond of sunsets. Come, let us go look at a sunset now.”
“But we must wait,” I said.
“Wait? For what?”
“For the sunset. We must wait until it is time.”
At first you seemed to be very much surprised. And then you laughed to yourself. You said to me:
“I am always thinking that I am at home!”
Just so. Everybody knows that when it is noon in the United States the sun is setting over France.
If you could fly to France in one minute, you could go straight into the sunset, right from noon. Unfortunately, France is too far away for that. But on your tiny planet, my little prince, all you need do is move your chair a few steps. You can see the day end and the twilight falling whenever you like…
“One day,” you said to me, “I saw the sunset forty-four times!”
And a little later you added:
“You know– one loves the sunet, when one is so sad…”
“Were you so sad, then?” I asked, “on the day of the forty-four sunsets?”
But the little prince made no reply.
Advertising on the jumbotron in Times Square is becoming a worldwide sensation thanks to all the viral videos circulating on the Internet. It must be one of the cheapest way to advertise globally.
Here’s a timelapse and behind the scenes footage of the EA Sports Madden 12 Cover Shoot filmed live in Times Square, NYC and broadcast on the jumbotron for all to see.
There’s nothing more relaxing than lying flat on your back and let your field of view fill up only with the expanse of blue sky and white clouds. The world is outside your peripheral vision and it’s just you. This timelapse recreates some of that feeling for me.
Terje Sorgjerd filmed this exquisitely beautiful video between 29th April and 10th May 2011 in the Arctic, on the archipelago Lofoten in Norway. It depicts the sunset/sunrise before the Midnight Sun. For about 8 to 12 hours, the sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again. At 1:06 we can see a single scene from day to night to day.
Music: “The Arctic Light” by Marika Takeuchi
Dominic Boudreault created this beautiful timelapse video from a composite of pictures taken from late 2010 through early 2011 from different locations, including:
- Montreal, Quebec, Canada
- Quebec city, Quebec, Canada
- Toronto, Ontario, Canada
- Manhattan, New York, USA
- Chicago, Illinois, USA
I especially like the silky smooth movements compared to so many timelapse where the movements are jerky.

MUSIC SCORE: “We Happy Few” – The Calm Blue Sea (2008) — but I believe it’s much more majestic with the sound muted.
It is a very large file and you may want to wait for it all to load before playing it. The way I do this is I start the video and as it starts, I pause it. You’ll notice that the video still gets loaded in the background. I select 360p as my PC will choke at 720p HD, but if your machine has the CPU power, go for it.
