How To Do a Holy Grail Time Lapse

Loire Valley châteaux around Anjou – Montsoreau addendum

  On Friday 24th February 2017 my photography took me to the Beaux Village de France of Montsoreau in the Pays de la Loire.

I have to make plans in advance. It’s not always ideal as illustrated here. You’ll some of the gear that I use for my travel and landscape photography as well as the end result of the time lapse work that I was doing […]
