At 0:29 the Half Moon starts to light up Mt. Baker and the rest of Iceberg Lake
At 0:39 is when the Northern Lights start acting up! It was a pleasant surprise to see the Aurora this far south!
The gear that was used for this film includes:
Canon 5d mark ii
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8
Canon 70-200 f/4
A combination of HDR photography, tone-mapping, and motion time-lapse. With this technique I tried to achieve an unreal and almost post-apocalyptic look, as if we were in a dark deserted village where time stood still after some kind of disaster.
Every single frame in this production is a HDR photograph, made out of 3 individual photos at 2 EV increments. It took nearly 30.000 shots over one month to complete this project.
Shot with Nikon D90

In 40 degree heat, in the largest sand desert on the planet, Chad Sayers and Chad Manley go looking for the one of the world's strangest of ski environments: Ski Dubai. In the midst of a city of dizzying ambition, this 'local hill' climbs 60 vertical meters out of a luxury shopping mall. Inside the frigid, air conditioned space, they find a dedicated ski community of desert-dwellers, growing in the unlikeliest of places.

This is my newest project from my home country Switzerland about the most famous Swiss mountain the Matterhorn. I was 3 times in Zermatt between August and October 2012 to make this film. I stayed some nights outside under a starry sky and a lot of falling stars. During October on 2’700m/8'858f over sea it gets really cold. But it was worth to do it.
Please share it, if you like it!
Thanks Roberto Cacciapaglia and Glance Studio for the permission to use this great piece of music.
