Photos taken from all over the Upper Peninsula// Filmed & Edited by Mike Kvackay
I wanted to explore the beauty of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. This is 3 weeks of hard work compresed in to a 2 minute video. 10 of thousands of photos were taken throughout the UP, including the porcupine mountains, Mount Marquette, and two of the bright northern lights flares over Marquette to date.
"Within Two Worlds depicts an alternate perspective by giving us the illusion of times movement, signifying a beginning and end within a world of constant contradiction. It appears you are traveling in the midst of a dream, half-sleeping, half-waking, and touching the arch connecting heaven and earth."
I discovered my passion for photography shortly after my mother’s passing while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) 3 years ago. This time-lapse video is my visual representation of how the night sky and landscapes co-exist within a world of contradictions. I hope this connection between heaven and earth inspires you to discover and create your own opportunities, to reach your rightful place within two worlds.
