Hey EarthSky! I wanted to share my timelapse of the New Jersey shore with you. It was taken over the course of 10 months and made up of more than 5,000 photos over the course of more than 40 hours of shooting. I hope you enjoy it …

Jack said this is his first timelapse video. It’s called Home at the Shore.

While watching the video, especially in the wake of Super Typhoon Haiyan which caused so much tragedy and devastation in the Philippines last week, I thought about Hurricane Sandy striking the Jersey shore in 2012. On his Vimeo page, Jack speaks about Sandy:

A special thank you to all of those who have worked so hard to restore the homes of those lost during Sandy. Thank you to every volunteer that has spent time bringing the beauty back to our boardwalks and our beaches. The last year has been filled with heartbreak and devastation with much work still being done.

It may not ever be the same as it once was, but it will always be beautiful and it will always be home.

Thank you, Jack.
