The Beauty of Northern Lights

This the first video project of Ole Christian Salomonsen from Norway. It is a timelapse video of the Northern Lights. All sequences are shot in or close to Tromsø in Northern Norway. On his video, published on vimeo, he explains about its creation: “I have spent over 6months collecting footage for this, I have shot approx 50.000 stills to choose from in making this video. A goal for me has been to try to preserve the real-time speed of the northern lights, or come as close as possible, and present it the way I experienced it, instead of the northern lights just flashing over the sky in the blink of an eye. It may work on other time-lapse videos with skies and sunsets etc, but with the northern lights in focus, it should be presented in it’s true speed to reflect her beauty. I got a fantastic soundtrack made for the video by local musical talent in Tromsø; Per Wollen.  The audio track “Aurora in the sky” can be found on iTunes.  More info about me: flickr.com/​photos/​salomonsen/​ and arcticlightphoto.no
