Charleston has no shortage of beautiful sights. From the natural beauty of the boneyard beaches to stately Battery mansions, there’s a reason why people flock to Charleston from all over.

For the past few months, Charleston multimedia production shop Vive Media has been posting beautiful moving timelapses similar to Instagram’s Hyperlapse videos on social media. A new video by Matt Coda, compiling more than 50,000 photos taken over the last year, showcases Vive’s tribute to their hometown seen through a series of dramatic beauty shots, is something even the most well-traveled local can appreciate.

(And right on cue, as if he lives in my brain, Coda has also started posting behind the scenes tutorials detailing how he created the video.)
