The video showcases what it's like to be at sea for so long. It was also an unbelievable route most on Earth would never get to experience. His path took him to the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Indian Ocean, Colombo, the Malacca Strait, Singapore, the South East China Sea and finally Hong Kong.
The video captures (in incredibly sped-up time) all sorts of conditions they traveled through. Tsang said he hoped to "convey the experiences and feelings of the "life at sea."" It clearly worked and resonated with many, as the video has been viewed over 2.8 million times.
The video starts off very peacefully. The waters and skies are calm, and you begin to understand just how truly large the seas and oceans are. Tsang says in the video, "Sailing in the open sea is a truly unique way to grasp how significantly small we are in this beautiful world."
It's not all peaceful soliloquies and picturesque weather, though. Tsang tried to take the camera back in when it rained, but at certain points he was unavailable. It worked out, though, as it showed what it's like to be in the middle of the open water when the elements are against you.
Wondering about the specifics of this project? Tsang used a Nikon D750 camera. According to the description in the video, it's composed of 80,000 photos over 30 days, and took 1,500 gigabytes of storage space.
Planets, galaxies and stars are on full display here. As lonely and frightening as sea travel may seem, it definitely has its perks. If you ever get the chance to do this, be sure to bring a telescope with you.
The cargo process takes another 13 hours. The crew often goes ashore while this is underway, as it will be their last opportunity to do so before they set out again for several days. Be sure to check out this video, as well as JeffHK's channel for other fascinating looks into life at sea.
