Ice Crystal Timelapse
Using a photography technique known as cross-polarizating light in combination with an extreme macro lens, Shawn Kol created one the most relaxing time-lapses I've run into in recent memory. The reason these snowflakes all look so colorful has to do with the fact that cross-polarized lights eliminates reflected, or ambient light on the source materials (Ie, these snowflakes), allowing their native color schemes to shine through. While the crystals melt we are presented with a rich array of incredible colors all melding together, coupled with an excellently paired ambient score. Enjoy in fullscreen.
