Dazzling time-lapse video of New Jersey’s shoreline

    Jack Fusco is a master of landscape astrophotography

    That’s simply taking photos of the night sky. However, the art is anything but simple.

    “This style of photography takes many notes from both astronomy and traditional landscape photography and then combines the two. Hours are spent planning shots out days, weeks and sometimes even months in advance to make sure all of the elements align properly,” writes Fusco, an award-winning shore based photographer who has been widely published, including on nationalgeographic.com

    While his individual photos are well-known, he’s never produced a time-lapse video. Until now.

    Fusco recently took his work to an entirely new level by producing “Home At The Shore,” a stunning display of more than 5,000 photos taken over the course of 10 months. 

    “Please hit play and take a journey to some of New Jersey’s most beautiful beaches and shoreline locations and watch as the stars travel across the sky. I hope everyone enjoys watching and maybe even decides on setting aside a night just for stargazing. Trust me, the world can seem a lot calmer when you’re staring up at the stars and listening to the waves crash on the beach,” Fusco writes

    The video is especially poignant in light of the ongoing Superstorm Sandy recovery, he notes. 

    Fusco will be speaking at the Accent Gallery in Ocean City, NJ on Saturday, November 16. The gallery is hosting an open house from noon until 3 p.m., with Fusco’s talk from 12:30 until 1:30.
