A steady wind of 10-12 m/s made for less than ideal conditions. But the water was nice, albeit a bit littered by particles from the strong waves. The surface water was moving fast inwards the channel – so I guess there would be a bit of an undertow deeper down. Not noticeable when swimming, though.

Did another timelapse. This time from Steinvika. I had only a flimsy plastic gorillapod, so the recording was wobbly. Fortunately, YouTube has become AWESOME at stabilizing uploaded video.

These waves are not overly dramatic, as it was only 6-7 m/s of steady wind, and the swells didn’t go in the exact right direction for maximum splash, – but you can see the splashes at the left edge, and my daring Wonder Woman Solveig Fosdal getting up close with the “geysirs” that sprung up high above her.

One thing is certain – I need a heavier GorillaPod or tripod.

When you have a new toy, you need to play around with it, so I recorded the trip back home from Oslo to Telemark (170km) with a 2 second interval timelapse recording.

If you slow the speed down to 0.25 and pay attention around 1:10, you will see a wrecked car, causing a slow moving queue. That same queue was ramrodded by a truck only minutes after we passed, injuring ten people.

Please, pay attention in traffic, y’all!

To get the most of the scenery, play the 4K version at 0.25 fps. For future long haul captures, I will probably opt for 1s or 0.5s intervals.
