Eastern South Dakota scenery isn’t all that great, maybe thatâ€™s one of the reasons why our interstate speed limits are set at 75mph. At any rate, today on my way back home from college I set my hooked my webcam up to my laptop and recorded what Iâ€™m calling a trip lapse. The camera took a photo every 10 seconds for the â€˜scenicâ€™ three hour journey and in all recorded 969 images. The movie is running at 12fps and the result is a little rough, but I look forward to experimenting with the technique further. I think one photo every 5 seconds will make it more fluid, but i don’t want to increase the length too much. The two towns you see in the video are Sioux Falls and Mitchell respectively.
