Thanks for watching and hope you enjoy!
This video is my first time lapse compilation cut down to over 10k photo frames equaling 33 scenes of various night sky events from Northern Michigan 2012- It took a year to shoot in many cold nights and took a lot of coffee, a bit tenacity and persistence to get this into a form of coherent electrified cosmic goodness.
Night sky-capes include multiple northern lights scenes, meteor showers, nebulae, planets, including Venus and Jupiter setting from Spring 2012, constellations, the milky way, comet Pan-Starrs, night-scapes over both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan.
Thought I might mention some of the more interesting wildlife encounters during the photo gathering-
1.sparring moose on Isle Royale under a pitch black sky after wrapping the Isle Royale Tobin Harbor airglow / northern lights opening scene at 3am in the morning, with their thunderous antlers clashing with fear inducing power that could be felt in the knashing soundwaves echoing in the hills, (and I had to hike a two mile ‘deer path’ back to my shelter in the direction of those moose, I survived to tell the tale without getting pancaked)
2. the howl of wolves in the eastern UP piercing the freezing air under a calm full moon sky
3.a particularly persistent beaver on an inland lake in the Hiawatha National Forest, determined to be in just about every frame with a methodically spaced tail slap on an otherwise beautifully FLAT CALM star reflected lake- sooo even though the star reflection sequence is blown by this beaver with a ‘tude, the scene is included anyway as a humorous memory
4. the blue heron fishing for a midnight snack by auroral light at the mouth of Sand River and Lake Superior- if only I would have not moved, this heron would have walked the river bank thru the entire frame..
Rare pairings caught on camera include ribbons of aurora above a full moon fogbow on the horizon of Lake Superior, the aurora and an isolated singular lightning storm cloud over Lake Superior, and the aurora and Milky Way in several scenes including Copper Harbor, Marquette, Isle Royale, Pictured Rocks, and Eagle Harbor Lighthouse.
There are also a couple sequences of rare magenta/red aurora that I will never tire of. 3:45, 4:26
Blue Heron paused at 00:57 before I accidentally scared him away

6:03-full moon Fogbow over Lake Superior under northern lights
Thanks to Brian Malone for getting the scene at 2:54.
I feel extremely fortunate to have witnessed and photographed the several strong auroral outbursts shown here from 2012 at a relatively southern 46.5 degrees latitude in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and am so grateful for the advances in high iso dslr technology to allow for time-lapse capture to be able to create these sequences for such high quality video reproduction of the night sky.
All scenes are within 200 miles or so of my home in Marquette, Mi. and I feel very blessed to live where I do and to share the beauty that I see ‘in my own backyard’ with you. I hope it inspires others to take time to find the beauty that is everywhere around us and also to raise an awareness about the importance of preserving our night wondrous starlit skies.

This timelapse was shot during October/November 2012 in and around Ålesund, Norway.
I wanted to capture the landscape and try to show the special moods the mountain and fjords bring out. At least in me.
I like the nights there. It’s quiet. Sometimes cold. Sometimes rough. Always mysterious.
The music used with kind permission is Fiktion, with the song Skinnskatteberg.
Also about moods.. And beautiful. Always mysterious.

Shot with a Sony a33 with Tamron 17-50 2.8 in various tempetures. From -15 to +15 Celcius within days.
Weather changes fast here.

For many years now I have been fortunate enough to live for part of each year on the shore of Lake Hallstatt in Upper Austria.
This video is not about the town - but about the Lake itself.
Hallstatt, the town, is famous for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times. It is a very popular summer tourist destination - so popular with the Chinese that they have actually built a replica of the town in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.
The whole area has Unesco World Heritage status.
Lake Hallstatt has been referred to as the “melancholic lake”, the “still fjord” and the “vision of a perfect mountain lake”. It is a classic relic of the Ice Age and it has a total area of 8.58 square KM lying between the steep Obertraun and Hallstatt mountains and Bad Goisern. It is the fifth largest of the Salzkammergut lakes.
Although this lake is one of the darker, colder, less inviting lakes of the region, as a photographer I decided to use this darkness and stillness as a device to reveal the true beauty of the lake through its mirror-like surface.
This is my reflective homage to
