Tasermiut, a story of Greenland’s Wilderness told by Alexander Nail

Travel to one of the wildest places on Earth thanks to Alexander’s backpacking trip to Greenland. Enjoy one of the Best of 2015 time-lapses on Time Lapse Network!

Created with a Canon 6D, post produced using LRTimelapse:

Tasermiut Fjord is a remote wilderness on the southern tip of Greenland. Accessible only via helicopter and boat it sees relatively few hikers. With some of the biggest rock walls in the world it is famous amongst the climbing community, but little known to the public.

In August 2015 I took a friend on an 18-day unsupported backpacking trip to photograph this remarkable area. We packrafted on the fjord and hiked high mountain passes. Carrying 2 full camera kits, an ultralight time-lapse slider I designed, camping kit and all my food my backpack weighed 35kg. Throughout the trip we struggled across the hardest unpathed terrain I have ever experienced whilst being plagued by mosquitoes. But in the evenings we made fires, caught fish swam in mountain streams and immersed ourselves in nature. We left feeling exhausted but privileged to have experienced true wilderness. This short film captures a small portion of this incredible landscape.
