Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is an aerial image of Bucegi National Park in Romania. Initially we joined the queue to hop on the cable car from Busteni to Babele, about 2200 m altitude. After 1 hour in the queue, we realised that we were almost not moving, so we end up taking a taxi to “Cabana Piatra Arsa” via Sinaia. From there, it was a nice climb up all the way up to “Babele” aka “The old ladies” and “the Sfinx”. Like, comment & share! 1 likes Related posts: 210-2020 – […]

How to make a timelapse video (the easy way)


Timelapse Video The easiest way to make a timelapse video is to purchase a camera that has this function. Some people call it a time-lapse maker. One of the cameras which has this feature is Canon Powershot G16. I take this camera with me everywhere. With this camera, I capture most of my travel images and time-lapses. Check out my Backpacking Cuba blog post. Usually, I select the 120 minutes option when taking a timelapse. The best thing about it – no computer or specialised software needed. Watch my 10 seconds timelapse below or check out my Portfolio: Star trails […]
