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.
