Reality is fluctuating 2015-2016

I've always been fascinated about things that camera or film techniques are able to expose to the eye. As a lover of the sun and astronomical truths, I created a time-lapse that reveals the spectacle of sunrise and sunset and what happens in between from a rather objective perspective- with the sun as the fix celestial body that it is within our solar system. Moving along with the earth, we are not able to see this truth with our own eyes.

To me this is only one example for mankind of being bonded to a point of view, that doesn't enable us to see the facts.

Enjoy my time-lapses from the Northern Hemisphere, shot on the island of Fehmarn, Germany and from the Southern Hemisphere, shot at Archer Point, Australia:
