New Walking Tour Video: ‘Bruges, Belgium’ (2020)

We recorded this 4k ultra hd video during our trip to Bruges, Belgium on August 2020. Bruges (Brugge in Dutch) is located in the northwest corner of Belgium and is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders. It is a mere 44 km from Ghent to the southeast and 145 km from Brussels.

The medieval center of Bruges is remarkably well preserved and is a UNESCO world heritage site. Bruges had its golden age around 1300 when it became one of the most prosperous cities of Europe. Our guided walking tour is about 1.55 miles (2.5 km) long, starts at Burg Square and covers most attractions and historic sites of Bruges.

Travel Videos: ‘Feel The Mountains’ Of Norway

Filmed and Edited by: HALFDAN HALLSETH (Fjord Productions)

It’s hard to describe a feeling. This is how the mountains of Norway feel. To me.

The geography of Norway is dominated by vast mountain ranges broken up by valleys and fjords. Less than 10% of the country’s area is arable, and the rest is mountainous. Glaciers are the major cause for erosion, so the terrain in the Norwegian mountains consists of plateaus and lakes with peaks. These areas have an abundant and diverse fauna and flora.

The altitude of the treeline comes slowly down going to higher latitudes; in northern Finnmark, the treeline reaches sea level. The treeline is also lower near the coast, and higher on the eastern slopes of the mountains.

Mountain ranges also form the main boundaries among Norway’s districts. They typically run north-south. Several of the ranges have had road and railroad passes since historical times; some are newer; and many close over the winter.

Filmed and Edited by: Koen Samson

A time-lapse film about the city of Rotterdam starring the city’s most famous icon; the Euromast.

Rotterdam is a major port city in the Dutch province of South Holland. The Maritime Museum’s vintage ships and exhibits trace the city’s seafaring history. The 17th-century Delfshaven neighborhood is home to canalside shopping and Pilgrim Fathers Church, where pilgrims worshiped before sailing to America. After being almost completely reconstructed following WWII, the city is now known for bold, modern architecture.

New Aerial Travel Videos: ‘Kilpisjärvi, Northwest Finland’ Autumn Colors

Filmed and Edited by: Timo Oksanen

On September 15th 2020 I did a brief visit to Kilpisjärvi, which is the northwesternmost point of Finland in the municipality of Enontekiö. Autumn colours were at their very best and gave me a good opportunity to test the IBIS of my new Canon EOS R6 with RF 15-35mm f/2.8L. Drone footage shot with DJI Mavic 2 Pro.

Music: Michael Shynes – Return to the Wild

Kilpisjärvi is a village in the municipality of Enontekiö, Lapland, Finland. It is located in Finland’s northern “arm” near the very northwesternmost point of Finland. Although Kilpisjärvi is one of the largest villages in Enontekiö, it is still quite small. In 2000 its population was recorded as 114.

Timelapse Travel Videos: ‘Rotterdam To Amsterdam In 10 Minutes’ – 4K Sailing

In 2013 a special transport over water left from Rotterdam to Amsterdam. A timelapse camera was installed at 30 mtrs high. The resulting film gives a unique and stunning view of the old Dutch waterways, in 4K. Images were shot with a Canon 550d at an interval of 3 seconds, totalling around 30.000 pictures taken. In 2013 the film couldn’t be published right away due to restrictions. After a few years it was forgotten. Till now.

Music: Dvorak – Symphony no. 9 (From the New World) – second movement
