This week I took a quick hike up the Stawamus Chief that overlooks the town of Squamish, BC and did some timelapse photography. The hike was enjoyable, and I went early enough it wasn’t crowded and my dog and I had the summit to ourselves for about two hours.

Here’s a 360-view I took from the top:

The joby gorillapod was ideal for this situation, that I could hike in with a lightweight tripod and set it up where I needed it.

I wasn’t really planning on shooting this, but once I got up there and saw the logging operation with the water I had to shoot it. I just wish I had more time to spend up there to get some more footage.

Maybe some time soon, if I get back in climbing shape, I can climb up the front instead of hike up the back. Here’s a really old climbing video I made.

I also tried to get the miniature, tilt-shift look in post with the help of Magic Bullet Looks.

I recommend watching it in HD so you can see all the little detail. I didn’t even notice there were men walking around the logs until I put the photos into a timelapse.

My dog enjoyed the view while I tended to the camera.
