Local photographer turns more than 7,000 photos into starry animation

Vimeo user Donald Jensen created this star-studded animation, titled “Cascade New Years,” which he made by stacking more than 7,000 still images.

“The result is the visible tracing of the star trails instead of the usual movement of the stars across the screen,” Jensen said.

Jensen adds most of the sequences used in this animation took more than three hours to capture.

Here’s another animation Jensen shared last month. Jensen describes Chromation as “a black and white tour of the Northwest.”
