The M6 Through Cumbria in to Scotland.
A new time lapse video filmed on my dash cam on probably one of the most scenic stretchers of motorway in the United Kingdom. The film starts as I was passing Burton in Kendall services which is just inside the Cumbria border with Lancashire and carries on for approx. the next 75 miles up to junction 20 of the A74(m) Nr Eaglesfield, Scotland. Sadly on the day the weather was pretty poor but there are stills sights to view including crossing over Shap and some of the hills and mountains as we pass through the edges of the Lake District. A couple of points of interest along the route is the climb up to Shap summit and the run back down again and crossing the Scottish border.
The footage was filmed for approx. 1hour 20 minutes but I have sped it up by 10 so the 75 miles were in effect covered in just 8 minutes by my truck. It was filmed on a Vivitar DVR 783HD waterproof action cam on Monday 16th October 2017. It can be viewed either here or on YouTube.
I see these Dash Cam and scenic view films as an extension of my photography and I am just trying something different so I hope there of interest to people as well as my self. The camera was fixed in to a straight ahead north facing position on this occasion but on some of the other video I have yet to upload I have fixed it at an angle to show off more of the scenery.
