A Time-Lapse of a Train Journey Through the Four Seasons

The short 1-minute video above is a beautiful time-lapse showing a train ride in Norway that spans not just distance, but seasons. It was created by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation, which recorded the exact same scenic 453-mile journey from Trondheim to Bodø in each of the seasons. The footage was then synchronized to show the same location at each time, and then made to transition from one to another in a seamless fashion.

You can find the full 10-hour videos and a behind-the-scenes explanation of how this project was created over on the company’s website.

3888 Photos Captured Over One Year Condensed Into One Image

While we’re on the subject of photos captured over the course of one year, check out this crazy time-lapse photograph by Eirik Solheim of Oslo, Norway (whose time-lapse video work we’ve featured before). The image shows the passing of one year starting from January on the left and ending with December on the right, and comprises 3888 photographs captured during the days that were then combined using a special script that uses one vertical segment from each image.

Beautiful Timelapse of the Aurora Borealis

Tor Even Mathisen created this stunning timelapse video of the aurora borealis over Tromsø, Norway, shooting the still frames with a Canon 5D Mark II and 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. The individual frames captured are beautiful in themselves, but the result of combining them into a timelapse video is breathtaking.
