This 30-Day Time-Lapse From A Cargo Ship Is Stunning


 The world’s oceans are incomprehensibly vast, a fact that’s quite apparent in this spectacular time-lapse of a cargo ship’s journey over the course of a month.

YouTuber JeffHK took 80,000 photos over a 30-day period, resulting in a 10-minute video:


 If you don’t have 10 minutes to watch the whole thing, JeffHK made a handy little viewer’s guide for you, complete wth timestamps:
