Experience the midnight sun north of the Arctic Circle with the eyes of an energetic drone and through silky smooth timelapse sequences.

This is the first of a series of films that describes the nature of Scandinavia through timelapses and aerial photography.
The material for this project was shot during a 7000 km long road trip through amazing scenery in the summer 2016. This adventure went from Copenhagen in the south of Scandinavia through the always changing landscapes of Norway with its deep fjords, snowy mountains, glaciers and many waterfalls, through the untouched islands of Lofoten and all the way to the moon landscape at the North Cape before returning to Denmark through Finland and Sweden with thousands of lakes and deep mysterious forests. On this epic journey not only the most popular tourist places were visited. To get the right shots it was often necessary to hike for hours with heavy equipment to remote locations.
During my hiking in the nature I shot 35,000 time-lapse photos and several hundred aerial photography videos in 4K of some of Scandinavia’s most beautiful spots. Afterwards this footage was combined to make a series of 4K video films that show the beautiful landscapes of the Nordic countries. Nature’s beauty can be so easily missed. It is my hope that these films will contribute to a deeper understanding and gratitude of the natural wonders in our world and to the preservation of our fragile environment in the future.
