HD VIDEO: THE FLOODED RIVER WYE IN TIME LAPSE

With notable climate changes over the past decade bringing more rain, the River Wye flooding at Ross has become a regular event during the summer and the winter months, so I decided to make a more generic film showing the River Wye in flood at Ross and rising at Symonds Yat.

This film was shot, mainly in time lapse over two main periods of flooding in 2009. The first scenes were shot during the last week of July and the second over the past two weekends, mostly in Ross-on-Wye by the Rope Walk, Wilton and Bridstow Bridge, but also from Symonds Yat East and Yat Rock. The sunrise was filmed at Wilton and the sunset at Yat Rock - as were the starlit sky scenes towards the end. The aerial view at the beginning was shot from a Robinson helicopter. The time lapse sequences are made up of over 6,000 individual photographs taken at intervals varying between 15 and 30 seconds with lens focal lengths of between 10.5 and 135mm.

The film is best watched in HD and points of interest to look out for include: The constellation of Orion the Hunter in the night view of Ross across the river. The rain shower which crosses Wilton Bridge just after the start of the second piece of music. River mist beginning to form after sunset by the big Horseshoe Bend around Coppet Hill, as seen from Yat Rock. The Milky Way and a brief flash of the International Space Station passing overhead, 4 frames from the end of the Milky Way scene.
