Hercules Winter Storm Time-lapse
January 26th, 2014
During the night on Jan. 2nd, I shot this time-lapse of over 1600 photos. Winter storm Hercules was bearing down on Southern New England. I set up shop around 9:00pm on Jan. 2nd and the last photograph was taken around 6:30am the next morning. From time to time there were near white-out conditions during this storm, though it was not as bad as the Blizzard of 2013. Like my previous time-lapse, this was shot with 2 cameras (a Canon Rebel XT, and a Canon Rebel T3) using an 18-55 lens set at ~18mm.
It wasn’t as tough to keep the snow off of the lenses this time. I used hand warmers to ensure they wouldn’t fog up. I placed a table over my tripod and anchored it to prevent the rig from blowing around in the strong winds.
You’ll see the snow pile up gradually in this timelapse verses my previous video. You’ll also notice plows and cars driving by throughout the night. Unfortunately the street light to the left of my shots continuously turns on and off during this sequence.
