This time-lapse footage is shot at night where a half moon is lighting cool looking cloud formations flowing over the Pacific Ocean after a storm front passed through. You can see the rotation of the Earth in the movement of the stars. Flights from nearby LAX streak across the sky and sometimes through the clouds. There is a lot more apparent light in the footage than is visible to the human eye.
This is a personal project that was shot using a Nikon D4 camera for its ability to see in the dark. The footage was developed in Adobe Lightroom and then edited and color graded in DaVinci Resolve.
Music is "The Night Comes Again" by St. Lucia.
