About 3 months ago I started looking at all the time lapse footage I had captured over the last few years. I realised I had more than I thought so started a wee side project of merging the footage together into a long film. A few weeks back I hadn't been out on the hills for a while so had time to prioritse and finalise the film. Thought it would be a nice addition to my usual hiking and mountaineering films and I posted it on Youtube and also linked it to Walkhighlands (the best website around for hiking in the Highlands :)). Immediately it seemed to go down well with kind comments from my few subscribers - thanks for the comments BTW:)
Then Walkhighlands tweeted the link and more views came in :) Even more arrived when they popped a link into there monthly news letter. The result was that in about eight days it became my most watched video, out viewing my winter ascent of the CMD Arete in this short period easily. I have since ventured into the hills and done Curved ridge and crowberry tower and also a magical trip to the far north and Sutherland (reports to follow). I'll continue to plod along with my video reports and perhaps this time next year will have enough footage to release a Time lapse sequel - haha!! Genuinely surprised and overwhelmed by the responses to the wee film.
Hope you like it :)
