This video was shot on Oct. 14, 2012, it is a storm water outfall off Alki Beach.
It was shot with a Go-pro hero2 in time-lapse mode. We had been monitoring weather all week and then on the day of shooting, watched doppler radar very closely, because we knew we only had about 4 hours of battery life in the go-pro and wanted to catch the plume developing.
