15 Amazing Time Lapse Videos

I’m amazed every time I saw a time-lapse video. With time-lapse photography processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, such as the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced. This kind of motion pictures are great pieces of art and makes me wonder why didn’t we appreciate the planet at its full potential.

I made a selection of 15 incredible time-lapse videos that are simply breathtaking. Sit back and relax , enjoy them and share with us you favourite one in the comments area. Check also this great article on future video marketing trends.
