Fall is often associated with sad and dull as all living things prepare for a long period of cold and inactivity at higher middle latitudes. However, this major change in our nature is far from being the most deprived, and autumn is actually the season to observe many interesting phenomena.
I shot and produced the movie using many snippets from different scenes and moods that ought to remind us of Fall in the beautiful region of southern Scandinavia. Most sequences are shot in Odsherred, Denmark, while some were shot near Olofström, Sweden.
Fall is the perfect season for astrophotography and our galaxy, the milky way, also puts on its best show as it progressively sets on the south-western horizon throughout the crystal clear night. Of course, a cloudless night sky can also be the occasion to witness the majestic aurora borealis produced by solar storms, which somehow got very strong and recurrent this season. To me, the aurora is at its best when it gets reflected by water and southern Scandinavia offers a myriad of beaches or lakes for us to enjoy while gazing at the green and purple beams. One could also witness a beautiful penumbral partial lunar eclipse at the start of the season, which is visible in a short time-lapse sequence in the video.
Perhaps the most beautiful part of autumn is just to contemplate the green, yellow, orange, red and purple leaves delicately wiggling down from the canopy while inhaling the smell of damp humus that freshly carpets the forest floor.
All shots were taken with Sony alpha 7rII and Canon 6D.

That storm dropped multiple Tornadoes in eastern South Dakota, I was shooting it from central SD. Other locations in the sequences are Aurora in central, western South Dakota and the Bighorn Mountains of Wyoming. The Red Desert in Wyoming, Bandlands and Buffalo Gap National Grasslands area of South Dakota. Bighorn and Teton Mountain areas in Wyoming.

Mojave Desert, one of the hottest and driest places on the planet, stretches from Western Arizona and Southwestern Nevada all the way to Los Angeles County. Graced with sights ranging from magnificent forests of Joshua Trees to burned out shells and parts of cars and hundreds of ghost towns, it also features some of the clearest views of night skies despite the incredible amounts of light pollution from Los Angeles, Las Vegas and surrounding towns.
At the north end of the desert lies Death Valley, the hottest and driest place on Earth. With just 2.36 inches annual average of rain, and summer temperatures that average between 110-120 degrees, only the most resilient plants and animals are capable of surviving this environment.
However, every ten to twenty years comes a winter of heavy rainfall, usually associated with El Niño (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Ni%C3%B1o). These vicious storms drown the valley, and when they reach above eight to nine inches of rainfall, a rare desert miracle occurs. Laying dormant below the harsh high desert landscape are seeds of numerous wildflowers waiting to be awakened by these rare years of rainfall, and the spectacular display that follows has been dubbed: superbloom.
To many, the most spectacular of these wildflowers are Geraea canescens, the Desert Gold, which blanket the lower elevations along the Badwater road.
This video was filmed as part of SKYGLOW (skyglowproject.com), an ongoing crowdfunded quest to explore the effects and dangers of urban light pollution in contrast with some of the most incredible dark sky areas in North America. This project is being produced in collaboration with International Dark-Sky Association (darksky.org), a non-profit fighting for the preservation of night skies around the globe.
Originally premiered on BBC Earth: bbc.com/earth/story/20160323-when-d
The film was shot on Canon 5DSR & 5DIII cameras & lenses sponsored by Canon USA, aided by Alpine Labs' Michron, powered by Paul C. Buff Vagabond Mini. LRTimelapse was used to process some of the shots.
