    This was filmed between 29th April and 10th May 2011 in the Arctic, on
    the archipelago Lofoten in Norway.

    My favorite natural phenomenon is one I do not even know the name of, even after talking to meteorologists and astrophysicists I am none the wiser.What I am talking about I have decided to call The Arctic Light and it is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun.

    The Sunset and Sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours. The sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again. This is the most colorful light that I know, and the main reason I have been going up there for the last 4 years, at the exact
    same time of year, to photograph. Based on previous experience, I knew this was going to be a very
    difficult trip. Having lost a couple of cameras and some other equipment up there before, it was crucial to bring an extra set of everything. I also
    made sure I had plenty of time in case something went wrong.
    If you can imagine roping down mountain cliffs, or jumping around on slippery rocks covered in seaweed with 2 tripods, a rail, a controller,
    camera, lenses, filters and rigging for 4-5 hour long sequences at a time, and then
    having to calculate the rise and fall of the tides in order to capture the essence - it all proved bit of a challenge.

    And almost as if planned, the trip would turn out to become very
    difficult indeed. I had numerous setbacks including: airline lost my
    luggage, struggling to swim ashore after falling into the Arctic sea: twice, breaking lenses, filters, tripod, computer, losing the whole dolly rig and controller into the sea, and even falling off a rather tall rock and ending
    up in the hospital. As much as I wanted to give up, the best way Out is
    always “Through”. I am glad I stuck it through though because there were some amazing sunrises waiting. At 1:06 you see a single scene from day to night to day which is from 9pm to 7am. Think about that for a minute.. 10 hours with light like that.

    I asked the very talented Marika Takeuchi to specifically compose and
    perform a song for this movie, and what she came up with is absolutely remarkable. Thank you very much Marika!

  2. Early 2012, we started a journey to Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Southern Brazil in our old and rusty Landrover. Once again, we brought our DSLR cameras and some gear to capture every great moment of this trip. Lots of winds, emptiness, pampas, bustling cities, animals, deserts and waterfalls - all wrapped up in just under 6 min. Enjoy the ride!

    Thanks for the support...
