Perhaps the Most Epic Time-Lapse of the Northern Lights Ever
Stunning is the only word we can think of to describe this time-lapse video from Ole C. Salomonsen, who created it from 150,000 photos taken of the skies above Norway, Finland and Sweden over the past 6 months. It was shot on a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon 5D Mark III with Dynamic Perception's Stage Zero dolly + MX2 controller.
Explains Salomonsen on his Vimeo page, "The video is a merge of two parts; the first part contains some more wild and aggressive auroras, as well as a few milky way sequences, hence either auroras are moving fast because they are, or they are fast due to motion of the milky way/stars. Still, some of the straight up shots are very close to real-time speed, although auroras mostly are slower, she can also be FAST! The second part has some more slow and majestic auroras, where I have focused more on composition and foreground."
