See a year speed by in just 90 seconds

Norwegian media consultant Eirik Solheim’s “One Year in 90 Seconds” speeds through the seasons—and yet it’s the most relaxing Web video we’ve seen all winter.

Solheim used a Canon 5D Mark II, shooting short high-definition clips from the same spot on his balcony. (Luckily for us, he’s got a fantastic view.) Stitched together, those clips begin to look like the HD equivalent of a pointillist landscape painting. The end result couldn’t be much simpler, or much more beautiful.
