In a way, using a time-lapse is kind of like cheating nature. Instead of having to wait days, months, or even years, you can see the effect of just about anything in a matter of minutes. It’s really quite amazing. Especially when you think of the possibilities and events in which you’d want to time-lapse.
Imagine taking the same picture every single day for 15 years and then being able to see it in a “film” that takes place over the course of only 3 minutes. Pretty awesome.
