Jökulsárlón Timelapse

As I have mentioned before I have really enjoyed my trips to Iceland andInspired by Iceland is a great project to promote the wonders of the country. It has a great website with excellent quality webcams that enable full screen viewing of three of Iceland’s landmarks: Reykjavik, Gullfoss and Jökulsárlón. My favourite is Jökulsárlón, often known as Iceland’s glacier lagoon. Just for fun I set about creating a time-lapse using screen shots from the webcam. The video below is the outcome of this (best viewed full-screen or on Vimeo). I took a screen shot of the webcam image every minute for 24hours (starting at 1900 hours). The images were then processed to convert them from colour to black and white and I also added some blurring around the top and bottom of each frame to create a tilt-shift effect. William Cheshire kindly provided the...

Iceland Trip

I have recently returned from a trip to Iceland. Myself and two friends camped and hiked for four days (3 nights) on the Hornstrandir Peninsular before a couple of us hired a car and explored the south of Iceland. It was an amazing trip and I would recommend people visit Iceland at least once. I have embedded a few of my favourite pictures from the trip below. For those yet to be Inspired by Iceland, this video should help: Inspired by Iceland Video from Inspired By Iceland on...

Glacier Tracking with Intelligent Pebbles

Glacier Tracking with Intelligent Pebbles

A couple of summers ago I was involved in a project, called Glacsweb, that seeks to discover what happens underneath a glacier (photo above) as it slowly moves downhill. Glacsweb has been subject to a recent BBC News article. Observing what happens to the rocks as they are broken, worn and moved under a glacier presents tremendous technical difficulties. Glaciers often exist in remote places that can be inaccessible for most of the year. Observing the processes under a glacier in “real time” presents an even greater challenge. Sometimes insight can be gained from tunnels created by moving water as it flows underneath the glacier (see photo below) but these are likely to flood and therefore dangerous places for researchers to spend time. Glacsweb seeks to address this problem by placing intelligent pebbles (photo below) under the glacier. These pebbles can beam back to the UK, via a base station on the glacier surface, information about their orientation, temperature, approximate location, and pressure they are subject to. In theory...
