Spending a week in -13° F temperatures in the National Parks of Kirkenes and Pas around the Russian border, landscape photographer Terje Sorgjerd captured one of the biggest displays of the aurora borealis. Using a combination of time-lapse photography from his Canon 5D Mark II and what’s known as a motion control dolly Sorgjerd has created a film that conveys the experience of seeing the Northern Lights. And yes, that is music from Gladiator to tug at your machismo heartstrings. Make sure to take advantage of the HD goodness and watch it full screen.
