What’s on your travel bucket list? Iceland? Norway? New Zealand? Ever considered Siberia? Neither did I, but after this two-minute video, that just might change.
My brother and I are prepping for a trip to the mountains of Oregon and Washington. It will be his first time shooting video with an iPhone and the new DJI Osmo Mobile 2 gimbal, and as part of his crash course, he’s been binge-watching Vimeo’s iPhone Cinema channel. I glued my face to his screen when he started playing this.
I figured I was staring at Iceland or the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Nope! This gorgeous location is Lake Baikal in southern Siberia. That’s right: Siberia, Russia. Lake Baikal is the deepest lake in the world, but it’s the snow-capped peaks that steal the show. I was mildly disappointed to learn that it wasn’t shot on an iPhone (they got a bit sidetracked). This montage was shot with the DJI Phantom 4 Drone, Sony a7S, and Sony a7S II.
DiamondSky has other stunning travel videos from around the world such as this 60-second short from Dombay — it looks like the Canadian Rockies, but it’s Russia again.
Prepare for some unquenchable wanderlust — you’ve been warned.
