Have a favorite timelapse from this list? We’d love to hear what struck your fancy and why!

If none of these timelapses hit the spot for you, check out some of the others we’ve covered lately, such as Richard Gottardo’s  “Northern Lights Timelapse,” Joe Capra’s “RIO,” Bevan Percival’s twin timelapses of New Zealand, and Joel Schat’s “Albuquerque Balloon Festival.”

Or better yet, learn how to create a timelapse for yourself through Dustin Farrell’s “Time-Lapse Photography: Start-To-Finish” tutorial or Nathaniel Dodson’s series of detailed walkthroughs for every step of the process. Happy timelapsing!
