From cloudscapes and celestial motion to the finer details of insects and plants as they grow, time-lapse photography is one of the most beautiful ways to capture the natural world.

I’m constantly stumbling across more and more stunning examples of short time-lapse sequences online, so I thought I’d collate the best of what I’ve found. Since I had so much trouble narrowing them down, I’ll be sharing them with you as a series of posts, over the coming months. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Tip: The videos are much more impressive in full-screen. The full-screen button is the four arrows at the bottom-right of the video.
