Time-lapse equinox video of Chichen Itza on March 20, 2011

Jump to last reply

During our recent trip to the Yucatan, I did a time-lapse sequence of the descent of Kulkulkan on El Castillo on the equinox. This was a REALLY tough shoot, as I could not use a tripod and had forgotten my intervalometer at my hotel. This meant I had to lay on the ground, holding my Canon in my hand like a rifle for about 1.5 hours, taking a shot every 5 seconds. Hope you enjoy it.

I have finally compiled the sequence and uploaded it to Vimeo. This makes it easy for anyone to watch, in HD. With Vimeo, in case you have not used it before, due to the large file sizes, it is best if you first click on the PLAY arrow and then immediately click on the PAUSE button. You'll see that the video is downloading to your computer. Give it a couple of minutes before pressing PLAY again. Here is the URL
