It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see. Perch yourself at the top of St Stephan’s Cathedral in Vienna to watch the sunset.

Comprised of 230,000 glazed tiles, the roof of St Stephan’s Cathedral gives reason to pause. One portion of it depicts the coats of arms for both the city of Vienna and the Republic of Austria. Another portrays the double-headed eagle – an important heraldic motif for the Habsburg Dynasty. Truly superb.
