Coast-To-Coast in 5 Minutes: Driver Makes Time-lapse of Cross Country Trip [Video]

Don’t have three months to travel around the country… What about five minutes? Freelance photographer Brian DeFrees traveled from coast-to-coast and back again this Summer and he captured it all on camera to create this awesome cross country time-lapse video.

DeFrees traveled from New York to California over two-month this Summer. He snapped a picture every five seconds during his 12,225-mile trip. He has album after album on his website that you can sort through, but the highlight has to be the 5-minute cross country time-lapse.

Here’s the video:

Defrees writes on his webite:

“I recently returned from a 12,225 mile roadtrip around the United States. During my trip I summarized each day in photos using the iPhone apps “Picframe” and “Instagram”. When I was traveling in my car I was shooting photos from my Canon 60D every 5 seconds with an intervalometer. When I was parked for the night or exploring an area on foot I was constantly timelapsing.”

Here are some of the other Time-lapse videos created by Defrees on his 2011 road trip.
