The Northern Territory displayed some spectacular scenery for this avid nature photographer.

IT’S ALWAYS A SPECIAL treat to find a magnificent new video of Australia’s photogenic outback.

This time-lapse video, shot by Glenn Walker over two months, takes a snapshot of the awe-inspiring Top End, the northernmost section of the Northern Territory.

The video is the result of over 13,000 still photographs, edited together to create a living, breathing window into this natural landscape.

“The thing that mesmerises me most about time-lapse is the ability to add time to photography, capturing dynamic changes of light and the daily rhythms of nature,” says Glenn.

After many weeks wandering the NT while shooting this project, Glenn says he became so attuned to the Top End’s natural cycles that he could predict the time and location of the rise and fall of the sun, as well as the moon and tides.

The video features iconic national parks including Kakadu, Litchfield, Nitmiluk and Limmen, living out their spectacular daily routines. We hope you enjoy it.
