2 Years + 300,000 Photos = One Awesome 4K Timelapse Through Europe

Patience is an incredible timelapse compilation by photographer Paul Richardson. The short film was shot over two years of travels through Europe (and a couple other locations around the world) and consists of roughly 300,000 photos.

In his YouTube description, Richardson adds:

“Shooting timelapse requires a lot of patience and forward thinking. Some shots took multiple attempts to get the right light, others required whole days just to capture a few seconds of footage. There’s a careful balance of trying to predict the future, and just being determined enough to do everything it takes to get the shot.”

For example, the milkyway shot at 1:23 was the result of a four day shoot chasing the milkway in Wales. I stayed up every night, driving around trying to find clear patches in the night sky.. But in four days all I managed to capture was a sequence of 50 images.”
