I recently came across one of the most stunning time-lapse videos I’ve seen in a while titled Slow Life.  Daniel Stoupin, a Ph.D. student from the University of Queensland in Australia, made it by taking a series of photographs over a period of nine months.  He then put those photographs together in sequence to show the world something that would normally never be seen by the human eye.

Underwater organisms, like coral and sponges, move at such a low rate of speed that the human brain cannot process it.  The beauty of the images, both in color and movement, is something to behold.

Learn more about Stoupin’s process for this video on his blog: https://notes-from-dreamworlds.blogspot.com.au/2014/03/slow-life.html
