Wow of the Day: “Polar Spirits.” {Video}

This short video by Ole C. Salomonsen is beautiful, mesmerizing, breathtaking.

What he says about the film:

“This is my third short-film about the northern lights. This year some epic displays has been on the sky, and for the first time I have included real-time recordings.

As usual, my main focus is on getting the auroras show as close as possible to real-time speed given the time available in a short video. Although in a few sequences I have accepted overdoing the speed to better enhance other elements, such as moving fog, faster pans, clouds, milky way, etc.

In the film I have tried to show the slower majestic dancing lights, as well as the more faster, dramatic and abstract shows, and finally the auroras in combination with city lights and urban elements.

Most sequences have been shot in arctic northern Norway, close to the city of Tromsø. One sequence is from Finland and one from Sweden. The city sequences you see are shot in and over Tromsø, which in Norway often is referred to as ‘the northern lights city.'”
