Gavin Heffernan of Sunchaser Pictures shot this mindbending time-lapse of the skies over Hawaii’s big island, capturing clouds rolling by below, and the stars overhead, stationing his camera outside the Mauna Kea Observatories, nearly 14,000 feet above sea level.

Seasonal Drone Time-Lapse

Seasonal Drone Time-Lapse

Watch the season fade in and out over a farm in this short and sweet time-lapse. Photographer Will Strathmann shot the footage intermittently from 2015 to 2017. He tried his best to fly his drone on the same path then aligned the clips to pull off the transitions.

Water Droplet Painting

Water Droplet Painting

Illustrator Adam SB shows us how the simplest of mediums – plain old H2O – can be used to create art. By dripping precise amounts of water onto a smooth surface, he creates a temporary artwork that’s sure to satisfy any obsessive need for order.

Little Big World: Oman

Little Big World: Oman

Photographer Joerg Daiber used a combination of aerial, time-lapse, and tilt-shift techniques to capture a trip through the many scenic locales of the Sultanate of Oman. As usual, the distortion of tilt-shift makes the entire sequence look like its been played out with toys.

Making Fidget Spinners

Making Fidget Spinners

Those fidget spinner thingies are starting to turn up everywhere, but rather than buy some cheap mass-produced toy, our old pal Engineer BrunS decided to make some of his own. There are few things more satisfying than watching metal shavings go flying as it’s milled.

Helvetia by Night 360º

Vimeo showcases it’s new foray into 360º video with this glorious time-lapse, shot by Christian Mülhauser over the course of 4 months. He used a 4-camera rig to snap over 55,000 photos of the skies over Switzerland to complete the project. Watch in 4K if you can.

Making a Karambit Knife

Making a Karambit Knife

For their latest video, Miller Knives walks us through the process of handmaking a micro karambit-style knife. We found the flying sparks, the sped-up sound of the belt sander, and the polishing of the handle to be especially satisfying.

G.I Customs posted this cool time-lapse video that shows off the painstaking process of hand-machining a custom bronze and brass steampunk-style lighter. We would have liked to see how he created the skull design though.

Dawn of Fire

Dawn of Fire

Tyler Hulett presents a fascinating look at the destructive power of the lava that continues to flow forth at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, as the tiniest bits of greenery struggle to return to the site of a once-vibrant rainforest, and former home of the Royal Gardens subdivision.

Seasons of Norway

Seasons of Norway

An eye-meltingly gorgeous time-lapse showing off the gradual change of seasons in the Scandinavian gem of Norway. Photographer Morten Rustad’s video took 2 years to plan and shoot, and 4 months to edit. Now if only we had a screen that could show it in native 8K res.

Laser Cutting the Eiffel Tower

Laser Cutting the Eiffel Tower

Time-lapse footage of one of Thunder Laser’s cutting machines as it precisely slices through a sheet of MDF plywood, gradually revealing the intricate latticework of a flat-pack model of the Eiffel Tower. We don’t really need one, but we want one of these machines in our office now.

The Ground Beneath Me

The Ground Beneath Me

Once per day for the last year, Mark Cersosimo snapped a photo of the ground beneath his feet, then assembled the images into a personal travelogue of sorts. It’s a welcome departure from other photo of the day videos. It’s also a good look at his shoe collection.

At the Edge of the Solar Storm

At the Edge of the Solar Storm

AD Photography wows us with imagery of the skies over Denmark’s Ordrup Beach, as an array of bold colors emerge from the skies, going far beyond the hues we’ve seen from the Aurora Borealis before. It took hundreds of hours to capture, but the end result is worth it.

Dissolving M&Ms

Dissolving M&Ms

Photographer Yan Liang and Beauty of Science show how something as simple as dropping M&Ms in water can produce art. Using a Sony a7R II camera, they captured this mesmerizing 4K time-lapse, which makes the colorful candies look like tiny planets going supernova.

Things Cut in Half

Things Cut in Half

Our new favorite timewasting YouTube channel Macro Room cut vegetables, shoes and other household objects in half, then kicked things up a notch with crispy close up shots and reverse time-lapses. Made with the help of the Adaptalux and Syrp Genie.

Rebuilding a Fiat 500 Engine

Rebuilding a Fiat 500 Engine

A fun time-lapse video for gearheads, as the lovely Giovanna Parascandolo takes a fully disassembled engine from a 1967 Fiat 500 F and reassembles it. She says it took her about two full days to complete the task, but it’s been digested down to just under 4 minutes.

Planet Earth II: Fungi Time-lapse

Planet Earth II: Fungi Time-lapse

BBC One’s Planet Earth II presents incredible macro and time-lapse footage of strange looking fungi as it blossoms from the ground at night. The sequence is part of the Jungles episode and was shot by Steve Axford. We can’t wait until the series makes its way to the US.

Pano LA

Pano LA

A couple of years ago, a client asked photographer Joe Capra for panoramic time-lapse shots of LA. The project eventually fell through, but Joe loved his initial shots. So he kept on shooting. For 2 years. The bigger the screen you have to watch on, the better.

Building a LEGO Death Star

Building a LEGO Death Star

A wonderfully satisfying stop-motion time-lapse of the construction of the 4,016 piece LEGO Death Star, captured by Bart van Dijk. We love the way he morphed each frame of the build, so the bricks don’t just pop in, and instead emerge smoothly.

Carving Pencil Tip Sculptures

Carving Pencil Tip Sculptures

While preparing for a marathon in Montana, runner Jeff Dougherty captured nearly 100,000 photos of his 5-mile daily loop, then combined them into this cool hyperlapse, which morphs between sunny spring and summer days, wintry afternoons, and the browns and oranges of fall.

Building Train Cars

Building Train Cars

Time-lapse footage from the Bombardier Carriage Works in Derby, England, where workers have built train cars since 1839. It’s amazing to see these machines birthed out of what seems like thin air. These modern cars are for the UK’s Elizabeth line.

Burning Man 2016 Hyperlapse

Burning Man 2016 Hyperlapse

Filmmaker Mark Day captured this vibrant footage of the crazy contraptions, sculptures, and art installations which turned up at this year’s gathering in Black Rock City, Nevada. We can only imagine it would be even cooler on shrooms.
