Here’s a breathtaking time-lapse video showing the northern lights over Finland. It was created using DSLRs by Flatlight Films for the Finnish Tourist Board’s Visit Finland website, and is meant to convince people to visit the country. We’re convinced.
Inspired by Tor Even Mathisen’s stunning time-lapse of the aurora borealis over Norway, amateur photographer Ágúst Ingvarsson decided to try making his own time-lapse video to show the world what the northern lights look like over Iceland. Using a Canon 7D and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 lens, he shot roughly 6,500 still photos between December 2010 and March 2011, using most of the images for this beautiful video.
