Stunning Time-Lapse of Norwegian Fjords and Waterfalls

The Green Report

Norwegian landscape photographer Terje Sørgjerd has become an Internet sensation in the past year, with his jaw-dropping, color-saturated time-lapse videos of northern landscapes. In his latest video, The Water, he forgoes the long, sub-zero arctic nights to tour the forests and fjords of western Norway. "Having spent countless days here, I really enjoy even the smallest parts of this landscape. Like hidden streams or dwarfish waterfalls outside of the beaten track that offer a great deal of solitude," he writes.

Sørgjerd recently sold his apartment, studio, and car so that he could travel full time, creating and posting videos from the road. His goals, he says, are to create an hour-long video eventually, and to shoot Mount Everest next.
