A student on one of our Elementary Wilderness Bushcraft courses took a great time-lapse sequence of the main camp coming to life one morning.
Duane Yates got out of his sleeping bag not long after 04:00. He set up his tripod and pointed his camera towards the parachute shelter which forms the focus of our base-camp area. The camera was then programmed take photos at 20 second intervals.
Duane was kind enough to send us the time-lapse sequence and we have uploaded it as a video, including music by Ziggy Evitts.
The following video is only 3 minutes long but it contains the sequence of what Duane’s camera captured over the space of several hours.
At first the camp is quiet. The sun starts to penetrate the woods in the background and eventually its rays reach the parachute. Then people start to appear. The campfire is lit and the kettle is filled. People eat their breakfast. The camp becomes increasingly active, almost seeming to bustle just before the first formal activity of the day is due to begin…
**Let us – and Duane – know what you think of the video and the time-lapse sequence by leaving a comment below.
