  1. Doubtful Sound is located in Fiordland, in the South West of New Zealand. It is one of the few places where the remote coast of Fiordland has road access, although its not generally accessible for private vehicles and requires an hour boat journey to access the road, which is unsealed over a mountain pass. It is a place of extremes, with a resident human population of 2, a sandfly population of at least 2 million, and an average annual rainfall of 8750mm (344 inches). Aside from the scenery, fishing is a major activity.

    Music: 'Cloud Over Hills' , A. Taylor.

  2. This video is a labor of love for me. I first got the idea to do a time lapse in North Cyprus 3 years ago during a visit over Christmas Break. Since then, I have been capturing footage on every visit. It took me this long to get enough footage to be able to create this video.

    Hope you enjoy it as much as me.

  3. Autumn is, together with Winter, the season I prefer. Its colours, as well as its foggy days, make it fascinating and picturesque. In dull Autumn days I like spending my time in the mountains hoping to climb up the clouds that look like the waves of the sea. Very weird situations to find. It took a lot of sacrifices and patience: sometimes the conditions seemed to be good but, often, the fog was too high.
    This timelapse short film tells “The Autumn in my Mountains”: colours, fogs, snow.. A two-year shooting, more than 40000 RAWs shot.
    Enjoy the video and share it if you like!

    Norway, with its beautiful landscapes, always fascinated me to visit it. And last year I was there, creating this short movie with awesome scenery! Unfortunately I couldn't take much with me but it has the essentials.
