Timelapse film with some of my favorite scenes from the past year. Locations of the time-lapse: Rome, Verona, Venice, Dolomites, Milan, Tuscany, Lake Como.
Every season has its own beauty. This is the forth shortfilms that will showcase the seasons of Denmark. The focus in these films will be on the landscapes – primerely the changing nature.
Spring is an amazing time of the year. I love this season where nature is blooming and the sunshine fill my soul with joy. The spring is an inspiring time and reminds us to embrace joy and love. We say goodbye to the cold, dark, and short days and welcome new beginnings, new hope, and new possibilities.
In this timelapse film from Denmark you will experience the following locations:
Skjoldungernes Land National Park
This national park is located in central Zealand, 30 km from Copenhagen. It is characterized by large deciduous forests and the Roskilde Fjord with islands, islets and a unique birdlife.
From it’s relatively narrow entrance from the Kattegat at Hundested and Rørvig, branches of Ise Fjord stretch 35 km inland and divide the northern part of Zealand into the peninsulas of Odsherred, Hornsherred, and Nordsjælland.
In this area of Zealand, there is plenty of opportunity to experience charming old streets in the grocery towns, exploring the Danish ice age landscape and enjoying beautiful nature filled with prehistoric sites.
This is the first of a few upcoming films from places that I probably would not have visited without the pandemic. Hallstatt is a small town in Upper Austria and with all the social media frenzy and overtourism I never had a great desire to go there.
However, last summer I spend two weeks vacation in Austria approx. one hour away from Hallstatt and with travel restrictions at the time it seemed that this would be only possible time were a place like this could actually be bearable for a day trip. While locals there assured me that the town was literally empty, it still had this tourist trap feeling to it all over the place. However, it is objectively really pretty and picturesque and all that, but it still is not really my cup of tea I guess. But check it out for yourself in less than 3 minutes – in miniature of course.
Below are a few interesting facts about Hallstatt from Wikipedia: Hallstatt’s tourism began in the 19th century but greatly increased after it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. It became popular among Asian tourists in 2006 when it was featured on a South Korean television show. Social media images of it, captioned “the most Instagrammable town in the world,” went viral in Southeast Asia. A replica was planned and then built in China in 2011 in Huizhou, Guangdong province, Hallstatt’s twin town. In 2013 it was rumored in China to be the model for the movie Frozen’s Arendelle village. In 2020 the town had a population of 780, and estimates of 10,000 to nearly 30,000 tourists per day, primarily via bus tours which bring tourists briefly into the town for photo opportunities, then quickly move on. Until the late 19th century, it was only possible to reach Hallstatt by boat or via narrow trails. The land between the lake and mountains was sparse, and the town itself exhausted every free patch of it. Access between houses on the river bank was by boat or over the upper path, a small corridor passing through attics. The first road to Hallstatt was only built in 1890, along the west shore, partially by rock blasting. Nevertheless, this secluded and inhospitable landscape counts as one of the first places of human settlement due to the rich sources of natural salt, which have been mined for thousands of years.

Gros Morne National Park is a unique place where everchanging weather and unique geology come together to create unexpected and captivating scenes. After many trips to this wonderful place, 2020 was the decisive year where I finally took the time to capture it’s varying moods through the medium of timelapses.
Gros Morne National Park is a Canadian national park and world heritage site located on the west coast of Newfoundland. At 1,805 km2 (697 sq mi), it is the second largest national park in Atlantic Canada after Torngat Mountains National Park, which has an area of 9,700 km2 (3,700 sq mi).
The park takes its name from Newfoundland’s second-highest mountain peak (at 806 m or 2,644 ft) located within the park. Its French meaning is “large mountain standing alone,” or more literally “great sombre.” Gros Morne is a member of the Long Range Mountains, an outlying range of the Appalachian Mountains, stretching the length of the island’s west coast. It is the eroded remnants of a mountain range formed 1.2 billion years ago. In 1987, the park was awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO because “The park provides a rare example of the process of continental drift, where deep ocean crust and the rocks of the earth’s mantle lie exposed.”
Northern Norway is undeniably the land of dancing lights. From the jagged-edged mountains rising up from the sea, to the pristine lakes, over the turquoise-water fjords with white-sanded beaches and through the boreal forest, the aurora borealis shines its mystical glow.
In this much overdue film, I compiled some of the best sequences of the end of the aurora season, ranging from January to April 2021, as many of the shots from the 2020 part of the season are available in my recent movies.
I shot the film in the area ranging from Senja island to the Tromsø area, and also Kvaløya. I used the Canon 6D astromodified and Sony a7rii as camera bodies. For lenses, I used the Sigma 14mm f1.8 Art, the Sigma 24mm f1.4 Art and the Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art. For motion control, I used the Syrp system (magic carpet + Genie 3-axis system) and the Vixen polarie for tracking motion. Picture processing was done in Adobe Lr and using the TIMELAPSE+ plugin for Lr. Assembly of time lapses were made using TLDF and Sequence for Mac, while the final movie was cut into FCPX.
Messina is a harbor city in northeast Sicily, separated from mainland Italy by the Strait of Messina. It’s known for the Norman Messina Cathedral, with its Gothic portal, 15th-century windows and an astronomical clock on the bell tower. Nearby are marble fountains decorated with mythological figures, like the Fontana di Orione, with its carved inscriptions, and the Neptune Fountain, topped by a statue of the sea god.

Moldova is supposedly the least visited country in Europe and the second poorest country in Europe. While this might not sound very inviting to most people, I found this country to become my favorite destination on my pre-pandemic East Europe trip. The people are lovely, landscapes are beautiful, there is lots of interesting history and architecture and i had the best Pelmeni and Borscht ever there…
Moldova is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe. It is bordered by Romania to the west and Ukraine to the north, east, and south. This film was shot in Țipova, Orhei Vechi, Soroca, Bendery Fortress in Transnistria (did not get enough footage for a separate Transnistria episode, so these clips ended up here:) and the capital city Chișinău.

Imagine if you could see the Milky Way from your front porch? If you live in the Wet Mountain Valley of Colorado, you can. The valley is home to Westcliffe and Silver Cliff International Dark-Sky Association Dark Sky Communities, where night sky quality is shielded from excessive light pollution through various measures taken by the citizens and the local authorities. While Wet Mountain Valley is known for the spectacular snowy mountains many visit during the day, the views are even more stunning at night.
