Film: Time-lapse film of a coral reef = mind blown — from by Maisie Skidmore


They may look like scenes from an animated kids’ film based underwater, but these stills are in fact all taken from PhD student Daniel Stoupin’s mind-blowing time-lapse film, Slow Life. The film combines over 150,000 photographs taken of some of the world’s most stunning coral reefs over excruciatingly long periods of time, allowing us land-based viewers to watch the otherwise imperceptible changes on the the ocean beds, which actually happen incredibly slowly.

All’s I could say while I watched this was, “Glory to God! GLORY!”
It’s like the fingerprints of God. The source of creativity. Astounding. Truly amazing.
