Timelapse is a special technique of filming, during which a single frame is recorded by camera every few minutes. When all of these frames are combined and edited, they form a unique clip which transcends the usual understanding of time flow. What you see in a couple of seconds could actually be an entire day on the spot of the filming. Resembling an animated movie to some extent, the timelapse technique never disappoints when you want to present the beauty of certain scenery.
