The Aurora Australis and the Milky Way are each incredible to observe and shoot on their own. But when they are both in the same frame, it’s an awe-inspiring sight. They can be seen together in the night sky in the South Pole, and Martin Heck recently released this incredible timelapse showing this inspiring sight.
If a photo is worth 1000 words and a clip has 24 frames a second, how would you even rate an 8K timelapse? Videographer Martin Heck challenges the assumption that such a movie can be described with words at all (I vote no).
Aside the obvious technical challenges of making a 100,000 photos time-lapse while traveling 7500 kilometers for six weeks in southern Chile and Argentina, Martin had a small (or rather medium) thing to take care of. Martin shot this movie with a medium format Pentax 645Z camera. That helped bring the total volume of the project to just over 4TB of footage.
Every once in a while a volcano erupts and it is always a spectacular sight to see, but Martin Heck of Timestorm Films was able to create a video as magnificent as the eruption itself.
Volcano Calbuco, located in Southern Chile, erupted on April 22, 2015 for the first time in four decades and reminded us just how mind-blowingly gorgeous volcanoes can be.
Watch this 4K video and I bet you’ll be asking for a volcano-view room on your next vacation.
