Travel: ‘The Polar Night’, Lapland, Finland (Video)

Filmed and Edited by: Timo Oksanen

We spent the darkest week of the year – the Christmas week – up North in Lapland admiring the snowy sceneries and making the most out of the little daylight we got each day. As it was the polar night, the sun didn’t rise at all.

Timelapse: ‘Signaldalen Auroras’ Above Mount Otertinden, Norway (2020)

Filmed and Edited by: Timo Oksanen

Shooting auroras above the majestic Mount Otertinden has been on my bucket list for years now, and on October 20th and 21st my dreams came true. Orionids meteor shower was peaking at that time, so there were quite a few shooting stars as well.

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.

Season of the Solar Minimum doesn’t look that bad now. Ok there are three months (Nov-Jan) without auroras, but I seem to have shot plenty of material nevertheless. Most of it up North, but some also close to home in Southern Finland.

Remains of the Fall Short Travel Film by Timo Oksanen 2019

In the end of September 2019 the leaves had fallen from most of the trees in Enontekiö, Finland, but the colours were still visible in the ground. I captured the remains of the fall foliage with my DJI Mavic 2 Pro with some help from ground-level timelapse cameras.
