Beautiful 4K Video of Lofoten in Norway

I'm not a landscape photographer, but I am a photographer. At the heart of all us 'togs is a deep-seated yearning to capture the rare and the beautiful. Another concept I find overly enticing about photography is that of being a nomad; a wandering explorer with only a camera as a companion. Or, in the case of this video, three cameras, a DJI Inspire 1, and presumably a helicopter. Whatever, stop watering down my poetic vision.

I have a close friend in Norway and so I've been given a glimpse into the sparsely populated stomping ground for Vikings-passed. It is a land of stunning landscapes, crystal waters, and temperatures so low in the winter that you get brain freeze just from opening a small window. One evening, while discussing this alluring slither of Scandinavia, I began a voyage on Google Earth's photo spheres to generate dangerous levels of wanderlust. I was successful as soon as I stumbled upon Lofoten in northern Norway. Previously, when I told other people about this mythical territory I did it via Google Images, but I have a new vessel for transporting my wanderlust: Dennis Schmelz's aerial video of Lofoten in glorious 4K.

So sit back, full-screen this video, and then wonder which items you can sell to financially justify this trip.

You can follow Dennis Schmelz on his website, Facebook, and Instagram.

Good stuff...and brave with all the water shots...myself I'm too chicken. Do you have the X5 or the original Inspire 1 camera. Whichever it is very clean.

Just great, and I must say that last Friday a member of our photo club also projected an AV-show of his voyage to this part of the world - he had the opportunity to take pictures of the sea-eagle catching big fishes with his 500mm - Perhaps next spring
