Just like he did in previous years, engineer Cameron Beccario of NullSchool has created mesmerizing time-lapses showing ocean surface wind patterns over the North Atlantic and the Asia Pacific.
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.

Google failed to keep the entire compilation in one piece, so I manually created the gif from a series of single shots from my Nexus 4, by uploading at gifmaker.me – which explains the lack of stabilization.
I guess I should try to find a better vantage point, and bring my Nikon + tripod 🙂
