Sunrise on the Reef 2 [video]

By Shane Graber - Posted Jan 17, 2013 09:00 AM
Time-lapse videos of coral reefs never cease to amaze me - watching these slow-moving animals move over the course of the day really brings them to life and is a beauty to behold.

In this video, jetstream01 features corals from his 135-gallon mixed reef tank lit with eight ATI Dimmable Sunpower T5's. While the video is rather short (less than 4 minutes long), it took weeks to put together as many of the shots were taken over a several hour time period. The short birdsnest shot in particular took over a week to capture!  He mentions that he used a Canon T2i DSLR paired with an intervalometer to capture the video with many of the sequences taking anywhere from 500 to 2500 photos to produce.

Grab your morning coffee, sit back, and relax while you watch:
