Australian time-lapse video released

31 July 2013 by Luke McCormick

An Australian photographer and videographer has created a time-lapse video of some of Australia's best attractions, after nine months, 43,000kms and 300,000 photos.

Melbourne-based Eddie Hobson and his assistant visited every state and territory to create the five-minute video, which features such sites as Uluru in Northern Territory, the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, the Gold Coast, the Bay of Fires in Tasmania and Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney.

"Timelapse has really taken off over the past year or so in Europe and Asia but there's been very little done in Australia,'' he told the Daily Telegraph.

"You always see these beautiful photos of Australia depicting this extraordinary landscape and natural beauty but here you see everything in a different way.

"It was wonderful trying to find all the little hidden gems and talk to locals to find out what best represents Australia."

Hobson said the total solar eclipse at Palm Cove, near Cairns, in November was one of the highlights of the trip.

"That morning we had extremely thick cloud cover and I had convinced myself that we wouldn't be seeing much but, at just the right moment, the clouds parted, making way for a full view of the sensational event," he said.

"The temperature dropped dramatically, the sky went dark and the atmosphere was electric.

"It was the most extraordinary thing I have ever seen."
