Living on the shore of Lake Ontario, just east of Toronto, photographer Matt Molloy has daily encounters with brilliant sunsets and cloudscapes that he’s been photographing for over three years.

One day he began experimenting with time-lapse sequences by taking hundreds of images as the sun set and the clouds moved through the sky. Molloy then digitally stacked the numerous photos to reveal shifts in color and shape reminiscent of painterly brushstrokes that smeared the sky.

You can learn more about his β€œtimestack” technique over at Digital Photo Magazine and prints are available here.

So what do you think? Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m in awe of the sky and its ever changing parade of amazing cloudscapes, so I’m certainly keen to try the timestack technique on the basis of these images… what about you?

  1. Stunning results. I can understand why you’d want to try this technique, reminds me of the project you did at Uni

    • Impressive shots, aren’t they? Unfortunately I haven’t had time for my own photography lately, so this technique remains on my ‘to do’ list. (I bought a business recently which sees me working long hours; plus I’m trying to fit some post-grad study in too…)

      Your ears must’ve been burning by the way. As it happens, I was thinking of you just the other day while watching a Grand Designs episode filmed on Skye. I was wondering how you’re getting along these days on that remote, rugged, windswept, hypothermic isle of yours, teetering on the edge of that icy Arctic Circle!

      Hope you and yours are well and cheery, and that you’re still packing that trusty Lumix compact daily, as well as getting out with your DSLR regularly. And that your brood of blonde-haired canines are still bursting with their trademark tail-wagging enthusiasm too!

      Thanks for dropping by.
