Timelapse: ‘Mountains Of Northern Norway’ (4K)

Filmed and Edited by: Night Light Films

What makes northern Norway so unique, mystical and fairy-tale like? It is undeniably its mountains. ‘Fjellan’ means ‘the mountain’ or ‘the mountains’ in local dialect. I wanted to pay a tribute to some of the most iconic peaks of this part of the country.

You can find all types of mountains in northern Norway. While some are more like rolling hills, others are jaw-dropping, sharply triangular peaks that rise directly from the bottom of fjords. But what they all have in common is their ability to feed our imagination. People usually see many shapes and figures in them, including animals, soldiers, sleeping giants or even trolls!

This short film consists of a mixture of timelapse and real-time sequences taken over the past 3 years in the Troms area. 

Train Travel: Countryside Around ‘Mt. Fuji, Japan’

Take a trip back in time and trace the paths of past travelers in the post towns and sacred spaces found in the majestic mountains of the Japanese countryside.

Japan’s Mt. Fuji is an active volcano about 100 kilometers southwest of Tokyo. Commonly called “Fuji-san,” it’s the country’s tallest peak, at 3,776 meters. A pilgrimage site for centuries, it’s considered one of Japan’s 3 sacred mountains, and summit hikes remain a popular activity. Its iconic profile is the subject of numerous works of art, notably Edo Period prints by Hokusai and Hiroshige.

Timelapse Travel: ‘Lone Peaks’ Of South America

Filmed and Edited by: Florian Nick

From giant icecaps far south to bone-dry deserts further north – I traveled 20.000 km across Chile, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru for six months and was blown away by the variety of landscapes on this continent.

But one thing I found that all these climate zones have in common are those massive mountains rising high above their lands. May it be the majestic granite walls of Patagonia, perfectly shaped volcanos in the Atacama desert or some of the high alpine peaks of the Peruvian highlands.

Even though it only captures very few of them, this short timelapse film is a tribute to all those lone peaks in South America. There is still so many more to discover and photograph.

Timelapse Travel: ‘Santa Cruz Mountains’ In Northern California

Filmed and Edited by: Della Huff

In July 2020 we moved to our new home in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We’re lucky to have an extraordinary view to the west, and I find so much inspiration in the changing weather and light that the view affords. I have especially cherished it this year since we have been spending nearly all of our time at home. I created this timelapse reel to capture the beauty and dynamism of the Santa Cruz Mountains, but I also felt that timelapse was an apt medium for capturing this time-bendingly strange year. I hope you enjoy it.

The Santa Cruz Mountains, part of the Pacific Coast Ranges, are a mountain range in central and northern California, United States. They form a ridge down the San Francisco Peninsula, south of San Francisco.
