An Interesting Twist to the Image a Day Concept

One of the magazines that I read featured the image above as the lead in to an article in a recent issue. I was of course more interested in the photograph than the article. It was created by Eirik Solheim, a Norwegian photographer, and originally described in a post on his website here. Essentially what Eirik did was to fix his camera in place and then over the course of a year took 16,000 photographs from that same spot. Of these he selected 3888 images from which a strip one pixel wide was taken to build the composite shown above. Very cool effect and has me wondering about other possibilities.

He also goes on to describe how he made time-lapse videos showing a years worth of photographs in a minute or so. Check those out here and below.

  1. I just came home after a frenzy of a day. I happened to get this video as part of an e-mail. I’m always interested in anything related to photography…I was transformed in 40 seconds!!! I would really like to have this piece on a never-ending mount on my wall. What a wonderful retreat. Thank you for always raising the bar.
