Over the last couple of months on Cruise Life we’ve brought you stunning Time Lapse videos of America’s Southwest, and Patagonia, well the latest one that has caught our eye is slightly closer to home (well it’s in the same continent), as we bring you Finland 4K Timelapse.
Shot over three months and after travelling 8,500 km on the road, Finnish student filmmaker Riku Karjalainen has provided a valid reason just why going to this place could be put on so many people’s bucket list of places to go. Finland is one of the largest countries in terms of size in the European Union, but also the most sparsely populated, making for unspoilt picturesque images.
Karjalainen was able to witness the diversity and immense beauty of his homeland from the very north all the way to the most southern parts, and taking in vast arboreal forests stretching as far as the eye can see, crystalline, snow-clad mountains and fjords, and millennia-old permafrost landscapes, and such phenomenons as the Northern Lights.
And for those of you interested in the equipment used in the making of the film it consisted of A Canon 600D, Canon 700D, Sony A7S, a DIY Slider with Emotimo TB3 and a bunch of lenses including; Samyang 14mm, Samyang 24mm, Canon 15-85mm, Canon 24-105mm, Canon 100-400mm and also a Tokina 11-16mm.
Take a journey through this sublime landscape in the stunning work of cinematography below.
