Timelapse Views: ‘Gros Morne National Park’ – Newfoundland, Canada

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.”[1]

Cinematic Timelapse Views: British Columbia, Canada

Filmed and Edited by: Sergii Bogomolov

The film was produced over 5 years and includes scenery of beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

The short presents rarely photographed nature phenomena like temperature inversion aka ‘above the clouds’, Earth shadow, sunbeams / God rays, falling meteor, moonrise, evaporation fog and Milky Way.
The movie pairs urban backgrounds against landscape shots a lot. There is a whole section that involves city and architecture which is then superseded by shots of wilderness landscapes. A notable example in the end of the clip is a juxtaposition of a crescent moon against a mountain which then dissolves to a high-rise. Such comparison was done on purpose.

LOCATIONS
The footage was shot in British Columbia, Canada and includes notable locations in Vancouver (Kitsilano, Grouse Mountain, Ambleside Park, Lions Gate Bridge, Bowen Island, Lighthouse Park, YVR, Capitol Hill, Stanley Park), Whistler (Garibaldi Provincial Park, Spearhead Range), Squamish (Stawamus Chief, Mount Garibaldi) as well as Pemberton, Okanagan, Osoyoos and Vancouver Island.
