Journey into the backwoods of Oregon with Eric Singer and crew to construct a community hideaway in the trees. The over sized nest is intended to inspire others to make the trek into the woods surrounding Mt. Hood. Those who successfully locate the fort are encouraged to add onto the structure and share with others. The first person to discover the nest will be greeted with a free pair of sunglasses stashed inside! Happy hunting...

This is the third volume of timelapses in my natureLAPSE series. This series of timelapses includes the following locations. Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, South Dakaota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
2012 was a busy year for me. I was fortunate enough to travel to many beautiful locations for both work and play. Whether the productions I was working for called for timelapses or not, I always tried to get at least one timelapse in to capture the location in which I was working. Many times as a professional cameraman, your working from sun up to sun down, leaving no time for anything else, so you will find a large amount of night sequences in this volume for that very reason.
Most of the timelapses were shot with a Canon 60d and tokina 11-16mm lens, some are done with a GoPro Hero 2. All photos were shot as RAW files, batch processed in Lightroom 4, strung together in Quicktime 7, and edited in FCPX.
A huge thanks goes out to Tad Hutchinson who made the music track for this piece as well as natureLAPSE: volume 2.
Inhale the fresh air, smell the refreshing scent of the green pine forests glowing above black volcano sands, no sound but the wind in the trees. A deep blue sky matches with the blue atlantic ocean far below. Epic volcanic trails lead trough an unique archaic landscape. Feel the elements. Be yourself, at the “Island in the Sky”.
This short film, a homage to the beautiful Island of La Palma - "Europe's Hawaii" - was like a never ending project for me. More than one and a half years of work.... photographing, processing, re-processing, selecting and de-selecting footage, some weeks filming…
I had certain pictures in mind - the scenes, locations, and moods. Every interesting place I had spotted during many stays on the Island while Hiking or guiding Bike Groups was considered.
I hiked up Volcanoes, stayed awake all night on stormy ridges, slept like a dead on the beach next morning. Pre-processed nights footage at the Apartment later, to validate what scenes worked, or needed to be repeated. Hurried back up the mountains before sunset for new setups. Finally got some rest and watched the clouds and stars move. Feeling small in the universe. And tired and dizzy, as well.
Night-Timelapse filming is an art, a struggle to live from, tough on your biorhythm – and needs a lot of passion, love and dedication. Passion for the work, love for nature and wilderness, being alone in the night. Back at the office in the timelapse studio it needs dedication and endurance in front of my workstations working trough the image data.
Which is the toughest part for me - I am not the office guy. I hate sitting in front of a Computer screen too much. And that is what you do with Timelapse. Way too much. After cleaning up the project, 906.65 GB and 83846 RAW images and movie-sequences remained for processing. And there is no automatism, each software at the workflow needs to be fed with each sequence separately, to deliver results...
On some key scenes of this film I have even worked over several months, trying different variations on color-reprocessing, iterating them many times. I am still not sure if they are good now. You judge.
Thanks to all who support me, especially my family. Thanks to Babak Tafreshi of Twanight.org for providing the legendary GRANTECAN Intro and MAGIC-from-the-side Footage (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MAGIC_(telescope).

After see the video "The Mountain" vimeo.com/22439234 I felt in love for Ludovico Einaudi music and the awesome work made for Terje Sorgjerd. I decided use my holydays for take my Nikon D90 and go hiking every where in the Huesca Pyrenees during one week.
