New Time Lapse Made with the Canon 5D MK II Focuses on Arctic LightsYou may recognize the name TSO Photography as the guy who brought you the amazing Canon 5D MK II time lapse videos just a little while back. His latest creation may just surpass it.
The photographer, Terje, decided to capture one of his favorite natural phenomenon. It's a time when, in just the right part of the world at just the right time, we are able to witness a sunrise/sunset that lasts up to 12 hours.
Terje says that he went through quite a bit to capture this footage, and lists some of the more significant setbacks including, "struggling to swim ashore after falling into the Arctic sea: twice, breaking lenses, filters, tripod, computer, losing the whole dolly rig and controller into the sea, and even falling off a rather tall rock and ending up in the hospital."
Though he often wanted to give up, Terje says that "the best way out is always through."
