Cinematic Timelapse Views: British Columbia, Canada

Filmed and Edited by: Sergii Bogomolov

The film was produced over 5 years and includes scenery of beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

The short presents rarely photographed nature phenomena like temperature inversion aka ‘above the clouds’, Earth shadow, sunbeams / God rays, falling meteor, moonrise, evaporation fog and Milky Way.
The movie pairs urban backgrounds against landscape shots a lot. There is a whole section that involves city and architecture which is then superseded by shots of wilderness landscapes. A notable example in the end of the clip is a juxtaposition of a crescent moon against a mountain which then dissolves to a high-rise. Such comparison was done on purpose.

LOCATIONS
The footage was shot in British Columbia, Canada and includes notable locations in Vancouver (Kitsilano, Grouse Mountain, Ambleside Park, Lions Gate Bridge, Bowen Island, Lighthouse Park, YVR, Capitol Hill, Stanley Park), Whistler (Garibaldi Provincial Park, Spearhead Range), Squamish (Stawamus Chief, Mount Garibaldi) as well as Pemberton, Okanagan, Osoyoos and Vancouver Island.
