A Container Ship Travelling Around The Ocean At Night Is One Of The Most Beautiful Things

I literally gasped in disbelief when I first saw this timelapse by Toby Smith of the Gunhilde Maersk at sea. It goes from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Ningbo, China and the night scenes are unbelievable. The skies are salted with glittery stars and the lights of the port cities paint the horizon in a sort of ethereal fire and the container ship shines through the sea in an illustrious green and it’s all the most amazing thing to see.


A Drone Hovering In Place Took These Perfect Timelapses Of Earth's Surface

Trippy Hyperlapse Of Los Angeles Captures Its Unique Beauty

Los Angeles is too big and unwieldy to be considered a real city, especially since the only aspect of city life is the collective bumper-to-bumper spurts on the freeway during rush hour. Not to mention that its machine is responsible for so much that is awful in mainstream culture (celebrities! plastic surgery! excess!) that you might think that LA is a terrible place filled with beautifully terrible people. Nope!


Watch Frog Eggs Turn Into Tadpoles In This Beautiful Time Lapse

Video: This amazing timelapse shows frog eggs transforming into tadpoles in a mere 30 seconds.

Assembling A Huge Cat 797 Dump Truck Is Like Building A Mechanical Giant

The CAT 797 mining truck is one of the largest haul trucks in the world and putting one together requires giant machinery that makes the truck look like a humungous Transformer or starship or alien planet station or mech or anything that’s comically oversized being built.


The Ground Looks Like A Mirror In This Stunning Timelapse Of Salt Flats

Video: The world is a beautiful place, but it’s even more stunning when the ground acts as a mirror and reflects the sky. Here is a beautiful timelapse of the world’s biggest salt flat in Uyuni, Bolivia, filmed by Enrique Pacheco. It’s such a perfect reflection that you can’t even tell which side is the sky and which is the ground.

This Timelapse Of The Sun Is Just Jaw Dropping

Michael König’s Sun is a spectacular timelapse compilation of our star from the Solar Dynamics Observatory from 2011 to 2015.

Hypnotic Hyperlapse Of Paris Teleports You All Over The Beautiful City

Video: Maxime Gaudet’s hyperlapse experiment video of Paris lets you jump all over the city in 3 minutes. The video moves at such a frenetic pace that the feel of the video doesn’t quite match up with the feel of the City of Love but it’s still a lot of fun to watch because it feels like you’re teleporting all over the place.
