Wilderness Views: ‘The Kimberly – Australia’ (4K)

The Kimberley is Western Australia’s sparsely settled northern region. It’s known for large swaths of wilderness defined by rugged ranges, dramatic gorges, semi-arid savanna and a largely isolated coastline. The mostly unsealed (unpaved) Gibb River Road runs 660km through the region’s heart, passing by Windjana Gorge National Park, which has towering limestone cliffs and pools where freshwater crocodiles gather. 

I’m drawn to this place where you’ll see no trace of modern man. A place still full of mystery and natural treasure, of ancient landmarks and undiscovered beauty. This is uncharted country, this is the Kimberley, Australia.

Special thanks to THE GREAT ESCAPE CHARTER CO. for sending me into this wilderness, thank you!

Timelapse Travel: ‘Norway’ Nature’s Colors (8K Video)

Filmed and Edited by: Ronald Soethje

“Draw up your travel plan on a large scale – and let yourself be carried away by the colorful hour in detail. The greatest attraction there is is the world – take a look at it!” Kurt Tucholsky

In the months when the hours of sunshine are shortest in the north, shortly before and after the never-ending polar night, Norway shows itself in the most beautiful colors. Whether it’s the sunrises that turn into sunsets or the northern lights that color the sky, it’s far less dreary and gray than we sometimes imagine.

Discover the land of the northern lights with its fjords and mountains in the south, the magical archipelago of Lofoten, the incredibly beautiful Senja and the endless fjords and islands around Tromsø. Recorded with cameras in a resolution of over 8k and finished in HDR (High Dynamic Range / HDR 10). The video looks best on real ultra high definition HDR display.
