    Time-lapse video

    Sunny day at Grafham Water - Timelapse


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     shawnk told me he's been experimenting with time-lapses for the past few years, and loves that they make you slow down and observe things that we're usually rushing too quickly to see. He also shared some great tips for others trying out the technique: "Use manual focus when capturing your frames, and make sure your tripod is steady, this will alleviate the jitter you sometimes see in time lapse videos. A good friend tipped me off to this after a few lack luster attempts. Oh, and have fun!"
    - lila, CNN iReport producer

    Captured on a Saturday afternoon in November of 2009 at Grafham water which is located in Cambridgeshire, England. Grafham water is a nature reserve located adjacent to the town of Grafham in East Anglia.


    There was a sail boat race taking place so there was a lot of activity to capture. The ducks seemed to be more interested in my camera than watching the race!


    Thanks for watching!
