At Bull Creek, we are privileged to see the slow annual cycle of the forest as the trees bud out in the spring, flower, leaf out, and eventually lose their leaves in the fall. If you don't have the time to watch the entire process, here is a shortcut.
There is a three minute time lapse video of 15 months in the life of the forest. Patience and focus were required to put it together. Called A Forest Year, it was produced by photographer Samuel Orr. He set the camera up in the picture window of his house and took pictures every 10 seconds at times, other times waiting for special events like rain and snow. He eventually combined 40,000 pictures into this time lapse video which you can watch at Vimeo.
