Eleven timezones, five continents, one day: this is EarthLapse

One day in the life of Planet Earth in three-and-half minutes.

From sunrise across the magnificent Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol to night-time over Cape Town's impressive Table Mountain, via a romantic sunset over Italy's Amalfi Coast, you can watch a glorious day in the life of Planet Earth compressed into a three-and-half minute time-lapse video.

Created under the guidance of camera-triggering gear aficionados, Triggertrap, EarthLapse brought together the skills of 45 photographers from 12 countries on five continents to celebrate Earth Day 2015. Comprising over 12,500 frames and 50 video clips, EarthLapse is a beautiful celebration of planet earth and well worth a watch.
