Gorgeous. Nature videos don't usually hold my attention for long, but I just watched that whole thing twice.
 
2013-07-18 10:52:26 PM  
Beautiful!
 
2013-07-18 10:52:57 PM  
Absolutely stupendous!

Thanks for the look-see.  Being disabled, I'm don't have the chance to do that kind of traveling, so I appreciate the opportunity to live vicariously through folks like you.
 
2013-07-18 10:53:57 PM  
Very beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
 
2013-07-18 11:10:04 PM  
Beautiful stuff.
 
2013-07-18 11:10:19 PM  
Very nice. Thank you!

Were those lights on the mountain between 1:30 and 1:45 climbers?
 
2013-07-18 11:20:49 PM  
Thanks for sharing - very cool.
 
2013-07-18 11:22:01 PM  
How do you move the camera?
 
2013-07-18 11:22:45 PM  
VERY cool!  Thanks for sharing..

Speaking of sharing, if subby's around, what kind of motion-control tripod gear do you use?

Also what camera model/time-lapse settings were used, for those of us still single-frame mode.

Never mind, I expanded the text under the video, and all was revealed to me!

Guess who's going to Mt. Rainier next week?

THIS GUY!

/Seriously--I'm so stoked after seeing this video I could wet myself.
 
2013-07-18 11:45:25 PM  
Awesome. Thanks.
 
2013-07-19 12:01:14 AM  

educated: Awesome. Thanks.


Always good to see you around!

Close one eye while the camera does its slow dolly for an almost 3-D effect.
 
2013-07-19 12:13:51 AM  
Wow

jasonvatch,

Can't seem to get an email through.

Thank you so much for the TF gift!. It's greatly appreciated!

Everyone else, please carry on...

There is no place like home.

Love seeing the climbers!
 
2013-07-19 12:25:12 AM  
awesome
 
2013-07-19 12:30:37 AM  
That was gorgeous!

Last month I was flying into Seattle for a connecting flight to Alaska, and looking out the window on the left I saw that the clouds had rocks in them. The pilot confirmed a few minutes later we were passing Mt Rainier. Beautiful sight!

/Seeing Denali in Alaska from Stony Overlook on a pristine, cloudless day was better though
 
2013-07-19 12:39:10 AM  
Just added your trek to my bucket list. Thanks so much, subby!

I'm totes jelly. I had an opportunity to climb Rainier and squandered it.

/have fun

Okay wow. That was amazing.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone, always appreciate the positive reaction to my work, its really motivating.

foo monkey: How do you move the camera?


Dynamice percepti0on stage zero dolly.
here is what the set up looks like in action.  This is from a couple of days ago up near Mount Baker, shooting a tarn as it melted out from being frozen over.  The camera is on a carriage system that is controlled by a small computer box.  So it moves, then shoots.. etc..

fickenchucker: Guess who's going to Mt. Rainier next week?


Enjoy.  Its a great mountain.
Curious, are you climbing, or just visiting the mountain?  If just visiting and looking for areas to check out, don't hesitate to reach out for conditions/suggestions.

 

jimpoz: Were those lights on the mountain between 1:30 and 1:45 climbers?

Yep.  It is pretty amazing, but you can see them with the naked eye, and the time lapse shows them in motion which is really cool?

you should watermark your videos

That was professional quality, to say the least. Looks like you've out your heart and a lot of work into this!

Very cool. Would love to see one of these time lapse thingermajigvids set to some METAL music!

yeah, I really want to do something with Shinedown.  I already have some stuff mapped out.

But, in the meantime, how about some dubstep https://vimeo.com/43004940
 
2013-07-19 01:07:43 AM  
Wow. You went all the way and got a camera with an eighteen sided inner barrel.

falcon176: you should watermark your videos


Yes.  Do this.  At work I made a spiffy movie that showed our simulations in action, to show at a conference, and it was a big hit, and just about everyone in my very large company has seen it.  (Meaning that I am more successful movie maker than many people who come to this city.)  However, I didn't put my name on it so no one knows I made it.

When I saw it, the cloud cover was thicker and only the top could be seen. The clouds had rocks in them.

I'm confused. It's on FarkUs but I don't see the part where you're asking for a favor, or money, or someone to buy your revolutionary new 'insert something here'.
 
2013-07-19 02:01:44 AM  
I demand proof that a Farker did this! Too incredible to be done by a mere Farker.

I got to hike Glacier Basin trail about 4 weeks ago..   One of the most beautiful places...

This is as far as we went.. No where near prepared or experienced enough to go further.

That was awesome.  Really brought back some memories.  When I was 12, Dad and I hiked from Paradise Lodge up to Camp Muir (the overnight spot for climbers around 10,000ft).  We've always talked about going back and finishing the mountain sometime.  I'll have to send this to him.

Doing a road trip which includes 8 days fishing a remote-ish lake in Ontario with him this year, so I guess I can't complain.  We leave in a week.

I just sat through both of your videos mesmerized and mouth breathing. You are seriously talented.

Amazing work.  Thanks for sharing.

I'm curious as to what one of those dolly's would cost - ie would it be cheaper to try and figure the control electronics etc myself?

Never mind - I just found the answer.  Not that bad actually...

After 17+ years up here, I still love seeing the mountain on a clear day while driving to work. We're a little spoiled by nature up here :)

Sure, but that's only when you can see anything through this constant driving rain.

/shut up, dude...

I just got off work, and I'm tired. I should've phrased it: "the 4 days of the year that it's a clear day" ;)

Sounds about right.. During the week I spent in Tacoma 5 days I couldn't see the Mountain even though the weather was nice.

Then one glorious day.. She emerged.. I drove down to the Emerald Queen Casino to the top floor of the parking garage with my 75-300..

You guys definitely are spoiled. :) Seriously.. You live in a beautiful state and plan on living there one day..

Here in New England we're all a'flutter about Mt. Washington, which is 6,288'.... When I visited Mt. Rainier, I believe we parked higher than that. It was a spectacular hike, though I did wind up with the worst sun burn I've ever experienced.
