2018 Time-lapse Recap by Dennis Bernhard

2018 was a great year. I got to travel across the country and around the world. Here’s my best shots smooshed together into one day.

Thank you to everyone who watched my videos this year. This will be the last video for 2018. I’m off to Tokyo and India. Be on the look out for more videos in the new year.


Fire ball through the clouds by Dennis Bernhard

Ball of fire through the clouds

Ball of fire through the clouds

This is my favorite moment of every sunrise and sunset. The moments when the sun peers over the horizon and announces itself as a giant ball of fire.

This one was made unique by the low clouds partially obscuring it from view.


Blue sky and pink clouds by Dennis Bernhard

Blue sky. Pink Clouds.

Blue sky. Pink Clouds.

There’s a lot going on in this picture. The sky is tall and blue. While the lower clouds are bathed in beautiful pink light. The fog is still dancing around in the distance. And in the lower right corner you can see daylight beginning to reveal the Harpeth River.


Shanghai Time-lapse by Dennis Bernhard

Shanghai is an amazing city. It’s full of lights, sounds and movement. I thought it would be perfect as a time-lapse subject.

This time-lapse was shot over two days during my trip to Shanghai. Unfortunately my third day of shooting was rained out. Nevertheless I had a great time running around this incredible city trying to capture a fraction of all there is to see.


The French Concession by Dennis Bernhard


Shanghai has a very interesting history of semi-colonization. As part of that there is an area called the French Concession. As the name sounds, it is an area of Shanghai that was run by the french starting in the late 1800s.

This was my second favorite part of Shanghai. It’s has a completely different look to it. The tree lined streets really make you feel like you are walking through Paris.


Marys Peak Timelapse by Dennis Bernhard

I was lucky enough to get a work trip to Corvallis, Oregon recently and was able to sneak away for a few hours to check out Marys Peak. 

I was a little disappointed when I got to the top and it was completely boxed in by clouds. But I was still able to find two cool views a little further down the mountain. 

And the drive up and down the mountain in my rented CTX was amazing.
