Madison River Sunset – Timelapse Video

Timelapse video of this evening’s sunset over the Madison River, just north of West Yellowstone, Montana. Taken with my Canon T1i Rebel using the Canon’s wide angle 10-22 lens.

The video is a collection of 200 still images taken five seconds apart. I was standing on the south shore of the Madison River at the Highway 191 bridge (see map below).

This is actually fairly easy to do. You also need a tripod or something stable to place the camera on, and the Rebel comes with a cord that you have to attach to a laptop. Then just find a sunset and a nice foreground and you are ready to shoot. One thing about sunsets is that they are hard to predict – if it’s looking a little bland, stick with it. Notice the gorgeous orange colors that start coming out at about 13 seconds in the video.
