The past year I have been filming the Northern Lights in Iceland during the Solar Maximum -- the peak of solar activity that occurs every 10-11 years.
On March 17th, 2015, I was fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time when the solar storm of the decade hit Earth. The sky was covered with auroras so strong, they were visible at dusk. This continued all night until dawn. In the film you will see rare red, yellow, white, blue and violet purple auroras.
I was also fortunate to get shots of aurora borealis lighting up the sky while the Bárðarbunga volcano was erupting. The orange/red glow you will see in the distance is from the hot lava spewing from the volcano.
Please enjoy some of the best northern lights we have seen in years!
Reflections from Uyuni is a Time-lapse short film that shows the intrinsic beauty of the salt flat of Uyuni and the province of Potosí in Bolivia.
The reflections produced by the water flooding the area in the rainy season are the main protagonist of Enrique Pacheco's camera, who invites us to dream with impossible images from another world, where the sky meets the earth forming an infinite mirage.
Its area of over 10.000 km2 makes the salt flat of Uyuni the largest one in the world. It is located in the remote province of Potosi in Bolivia, near the Andes, at an altitude of 3.656 m.
In this remote corner of the Earth, a peculiar natural phenomenon occurs - a thin layer of water gathered on a plain of salt turns it into an other-worldly looking glass mirroring the skies above in perfect symmetry. The eerie calmness of the place makes it all the more supernatural, and takes the observer far beyond the familiar.
