Following on from yesterdays post where the Olympic Torch arrived in Aberdeen today’s post focused on its journey south towards Dundee. The Torch left Dyce, Aberdeen around 07:30 it reached the Bridge of Dee around 08:35 at which time the videos and photographs below were taken. As the day has now drawn to and end that’s 25 days of the relay completed and 45 days left until it reaches London in time for the commencement of the opening ceremony.
Recorded about an hour of footage and compressed it down into about five minutes, it shows the the City of Aberdeen, Scotland gradually coming to life as the dawn breaks over the city. One can see the Bridge of Dee clearly in the center of the shot. As time moves on, one can see that the bridge becomes illuminated with the sunshine gradually creeping out over the hills from behind the location from which to footage was recorded.
Recorded about an hour of footage and reduced it down into about two minutes, it shows the sun gradually making its way across the Bridge of Dee in Aberdeen, Scotland. The sun was rising south east of the bridge and gradually illuminates it over the duration of the recorded footage. The footage was recorded from Tollohill Woods on the south bank of the Dee.
