As promised, here is a timelapse video shot through the window of our hotel room in Las Vegas. We’re on the 49th floor. The view is pretty spectacular. The camera is looking west, toward the setting Sun. The rest of the Las Vegas Strip is hidden off to the left. Downtown Las Vegas is far to the right, also hidden.
I expected the haze and cirrus to produce a beautiful red glow. No such luck. You’ll hardly miss it.
In case you’re wondering, this timelapse was shot one frame every two seconds. That makes this sixty times normal speed.
It’s pretty obvious why you don’t want to shoot through a window. In this case it’s two windows! Double panes are used for noise and climate control.
All things considered, not too bad.
