✱ The Watchman / by Evan Troxel

This is a short time-lapse shot from Watchman Campground in Zion National Park of the sun setting on Watchman Peak. Watch it in HD here. I made the mistake of shooting jpeg only so I couldn't pull as much out of the images as I had hoped, especially near the end of the sequence. I'll definitely be shooting more time-lapse now that I'm starting to get the hang of it. There is so much possible with time-lapse and the field has exploded with new technology lately. It's a great creative outlet.

Technical info: Shot on my Olympus OM-D E-M5, with a 12mm lens (24mm equiv), 1 shot every 10 seconds (393 frames) using Triggertrap (App Store link) on iPhone for a controller. Overall shoot time was just over an hour. Put together using LRTimelapse and Adobe Lightroom 5.
