  2. BEST VIEWED IN HD AND FULLSCREEN (with scaling off)

    Midnight Sun: A natural phenomenon occurring in the summer months north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle where the sun never fully sets and remains visible 24 hours a day.

    Shot entirely in Ultra HD 4K resolution, this short time lapse film was shot during the Icelandic Midnight Sun in June of 2011.

    For 17 days I traveled solo around the entire island shooting almost 24 hours, sleeping in the car, and eating whenever I had the time. During my days shooting this film I shot 38,000 images, traveled some 2900 miles, and saw some of the most amazing, beautiful, and indescribable landscapes on the planet. Iceland is absolutely one of the most beautiful and unusual places you could ever imagine. Especially during the Midnight Sun when the quality of light hitting the landscape is very unusual, and very spectacular.

    Iceland is a landscape photographers paradise and playground, and should be number 1 on every photographers must visit list. Iceland during the Midnight Sun is in sort of a permanent state of sunset. The sun never full sets and travels horizontally across the horizon throughout the night, as can be seen in the opening shot and at the :51 second mark in the video.

    During the Arctic summer, sunset was at midnight and sunrise was at 3am. The Arctic summer sun provided 24 hours a day of light, with as much as 6 hours daily of "Golden light". Once the sun had set it wouldn't even get dark enough for the stars to come out, and they don't start to reappear until August.

    My advice to everyone out there, photographer or not, is simple... You MUST visit Iceland sometime during your lifetime. You will never regret it.

    The text used for the narration of “Passing Through” is part of a speech Serbian scientist and inventor
    Nikola Tesla delivered in 1893 at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Though today less known than
    figures like Edison and Einstein, Tesla was more or less the father of much of our modern technology, since
    he among other things developed the foundations of the European electrical system based on alternating
    currents and the principles of wireless radio communication.

    At the time he was deeply influenced by the Austrian physicist and philosopher Ernst Mach, believing
    that the world should be conceived as a whole where everything is interconnected influencing each
    other. And that energy is a force that runs through everything be it inorganic matter, organisms or human
    consciousness. According to this line of thought every single action has universal consequences, not unlike
    what the father of modern chaos theory Edward Lorenz in the 1960’s termed ‘the butterfly effect’.

    .

    “Passing Through” is made at Kolding School of Design in connection to the Danish iPower-project.

    Narration text:
    "Like a wave in the physical world, in the infinite ocean of the medium which pervades all, so in the world of organisms, in life, an impulse started proceeds onward, at times, may be, with the speed of light, at times, again, so slowly that for ages and ages it seems to stay, passing through processes of a complexity inconceivable to men, but in all its forms, in all its stages, its energy ever and ever integrally present. 

    A single ray of light from a distant star falling upon the eye of a tyrant in bygone times may have altered the course of his life, may have changed the destiny of nations, may have transformed the surface of the globe, so intricate, so inconceivably complex are the processes in Nature. In no way can we get such an overwhelming idea of the grandeur of Nature than when we consider, that in accordance with the law of the conservation of energy, throughout the Infinite, the forces are in a perfect balance, and hence the energy of a single thought may determine the motion of a universe.”

    Nikola Tesla "The Electrical Review, 1893"
