I take far too many photographs! I have freely licensed over 11,000 photos through Wikimedia Commons – you can find them at Category:Photos by Mike Peel.

Where have they appeared?


Timelapse photography is where you take a photograph of the same scene at a set interval (say, every 5 seconds), and then the resulting photographs are turned into a video. This lets you speed up the movement of something, so what might have been unseen as it happens so slowly becomes very noticeable.

As I work at Jodrell Bank Observatory, the telescopes are the obvious things to make timelapses of.
