Timelapse, or long exposure photography has become increasingly popular recently with photographers using the technique to capture one specific scene over a period of time.

Working on a long exposure image involves slowing the shutter speed right down so that a series of still images are captured to create one full image. This technique is sometimes used by photographers wanting to capture the movement of traffic over time in a city or for extreme weather conditions, among other things.

Take a look through these beautiful pictures from professional photographers across the world and appreciate the beauty of these waterfalls.
