You know how everything seems to look better in slow motion? Well, it turns out that clouds look amazingly good going really, really fast. These giant floating masses of water often appear to stand still, but give them a little kick of speed and all their undulating movements and diverging layers become apparent.
Our first example is by photographer Simon Christen who captured fleeting clouds over a year long period while traveling around his home in the California Bay Area.
Our second example is by the very talented (and time lapse obsessed) Ben Wiggins. His “Another Cloud Reel” was also filmed around the San Francisco area, which has more than it’s share of beautiful cloudy weather.
