i lately traveled to Greenland and Iceland to shoot the arctic Aurora, and my new video “ Lands – Greenland | Iceland” is the result.
The aurora borealis follows an eleven yr cycle wherein aurora interest is at its maximum at the 11th 12 months. I shot this video in the course of the eleventh year of the cycle. The aurora is a very dynamic element, and that i experience that also photographs just don’t do it justice. I decided I desired to shoot the aurora the usage of timelapse images to show humans how the aurora dances within the sky.
I chose Greenland as my important region for this video due to its remoteness and the way far north it is geographically, and it sits directly below the aurora belt. Greenland normally has fairly clean skies, which makes the chances of seeing the aurora a great deal better. The place turned into very tough logistically as journey within Greenland is either by means of plane, helicopter, dogsled, or snowmobile. I used two neighborhood guides to assist me and we traveled across the landscape mostly on dogsled.
on account that Iceland is technically on the manner to Greenland for me (coming from la), I determined to stop there to shoot. Iceland has awesome aurora show regularly, however the climate in Iceland is the primary problem capturing there. happily, I were given lucky and had 2 nights of clear skies and incredible aurora. I used a rental automobile and actually drove around the principle road hunting for aurora.
