Watch: The Sky Turned Red (timelapse of Sabic, Sittard-Geleen)

Watch this timelapse video right to the end and tell me if this isn’t a beautiful day to night transition with a sunrise that is rather unique. At least here in Sittard.

I walk the streets mostly in the morning and to see sunrise like that is always a celebration.

When I was standing there, looking at the sky, I kind of predicted that the clouds are going to turn red and there will be a show at the end.


Ever thought of making your own timelapse like this?

If you don’t know how to do it, but you would love to know, then check out some of the videos on youtube. I bet there is a lot of people teaching this stuff.

I can’t be bothered to create a tutorial unless there will be at least 100 people interested.

Otherwise search for terms like “how to shoot a time lapse” and you should be able to find a lot of good tutorials

But before you even consider going that road, consider the following.

You should have basic understanding in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Preferably knowing how to enhance timelapse images once you import them into your computer.

It isn’t a rocket science or whatever but there are few things that if you do right, your timelapse will look better.


For dozens of little tips and tricks neccesary to craft amazing images which you can then turn into a timelapse, check the Ben’s Willmore – Lightroom and Photoshop course he did with creativeLive.

It’s a bit pricey but the wisdom you find in it will pay for itself multiple times later.

Trust me on this one…

Here is where you get it.

P.S. Just the Lightroom presets are worth the money, not to mention all the bonus material that comes with the course.

Good luck…
