Time-Lapse Video: Winter Storm Draco “Blizzard” Version 1

Time-lapse photo series of the Great Wisconsin Blizzard of 2012 (aka “Draco”), taken between 11p December 19 and 9p December 20. Taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark IV, controlled by DSLR Assistant for OSX.

Capture interval: 90 seconds.
Frame speed in replay: 0.1 second per photo.

I’m not super impressed with the results on this, though most of the reason is because of how the storm progressed. Temperatures rose more than forecasters expected in the afternoon, leaving much denser, thicker snow than anticipated. This development kept the 8″ of accumulation somewhat short of the 12-16″ predicted, making the snow’s visible growth less impressive. It also splashed against the window, limiting visibility.

Also was hindered by the lack of battery power (see test pattern break). Soon, I hope we’ll be able to get an AC adapter to eliminate this problem.

This ended only where the second charge gave out. I put it back on for the blowing and drifting on the evening of December 20.
