The Arctic Light

Terje Sørgjerd is fast becoming everyone’s favourite time-lapse photographer. His two previous efforts, The Aurora and The Mountain have been been viewed over 13 million times!

In his latest time-lapse masterpiece, Sørgjerd travels to Lofoten, a Norwegian archipelago in the Artic Circle to capture the midnight sun, a phenomenon where, given the right conditions, the sun is visible for 24 hours. His 12-day trip was marred with accidents – aside from the equipment lost to the sea, he also fell into the Arctic twice and was hospitalized when he slipped off a rock.

In his interview with The Huffington Post, Sørgjerd says that, apart from a few adjustments, no HDR or photoshopping has been done to the 9 terabytes of data that he gathered on the journey. He calls his time-lapse video The Arctic Light. It’s truly a magnificent view. See it below.

The Mountain and Stars, Caught in Time-Lapse

You may remember Norwegian photographer Terje Sorgjerd for The Aurora, a wonderful time-lapse video of Aurora Borealis. This time, the intrepid photographer happened to be visiting Mount Teide, the highest mountain in Spain and reportedly one of the best places in the world to capture the stars.

During the eight days that Sorgjerd spent there, he captured the beauty of the landscape around him and that of the stars above him. He even experienced a sandstorm during his filming. Have a look at his incredible time-lapse creation, The Mountain, below.
