Hello everyone,

Here is a short timelapse film depicting the scenic landscapes of Bulgaria, from the coast of the Black sea to the mountains of Rila and Pirin national parks. This country does not have a lot of tourism, except on the coast with its big resorts. I want to show you that there is much more to see in this country, with plenty of beautiful lakes in the mountains and places where nature is at its best.

Shot entirely on Canon 70D with Tokina 11-16mm during my vacations there.

Good quality production. I'm impressed at the professional output from the gear you've used. Really good work. I've never used video on my cameras perhaps I should give it a go.

Thank you for the comment.
For a timelapse you are downscaling images of 20M pixels to FullHD anyway, so no need to have expensive gear. What matters the most is the use of ND filters and a tripod (or better sliders, etc... but I didn't have any motion-controlled gear).

nice work. you must travel alone, most wives/husbands wouldn't like waiting around for that many photos. :D

how did you accomplish the panning shots? they were all very smooth.

Cool, looks great. Got any more. Just had a weekend away to the Jurassic Coast in the UK. Took my time lapse bag with me with lots of ideas. Never got my gear out of it. Two kids under 3 years..........

Excellent production! I cannot believe you did all the zooming and panning/tilting manually - so even and linear!

By the way, why the ND filters? If you took individual images (frames), you wanted them to be sharp, right? So, why not use a normal exposure?

Thanks for the beautiful video!

I'm one of the few to whom you wouldn't need to sell the country - I'm from there. I just wish I had more time to spend there photographing.
