‘Chase the endless horizon’ of Asia with 80,000 photos from the bow of a mega ship.
YouTuber JeffHK has a unique niche: he’s a young mariner who lives his life at sea aboard mega container ships, and he wants to bring us along for the ride. His videos cover everything from how to join the maritime industry to how to anchor a megaship, and occasionally—and fortunately for those of us unlikely to go seabound ourselves—he creates a stunning timelapse that only someone in his position could make.
In the case of the video below, he takes us through Asian ports from Colombo to Hong Kong, during dramatic weather and stunning sunscapes, culled from about 80,000 photos and 1500GB of project files. In a particularly beautiful sequence (around 6:33), a long exposure capture of a nearly full moon causes the frame to appear like “daytime with stars in the background.”
