Check out this video from Tate Yoder, 17, which was shot over the course of six months around Down East Maine.

It was the result of a self-designed photography course at George Stevens Academy, where he’s a senior.

Each time lapse was the result of 100 to 500 photos taken over the course of one to four hours. Then he edited them and pieced them together into a video.

“The goal was to showcase the area of Downeast Maine. I got inspired to do this by seeing time-lapse footage of beautiful areas all around the world. However, we often times take for granted with what we have, and for those of you who live along this coast know that we really do live in an amazing area,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

The video was shot around the Blue Hill area and at Acadia National Park.

“I’ve spent endless hours shooting, driving to locations, and getting frustrated with my gear…and often this was happening at night,” he wrote.
