Our Magnificent Planet Earth 
(9 outstanding videos)




  • Sometimes we simply have to take a moment and marvel at our own existence and planet. We are on a beautiful celestial body rotating around the sun at 67,000 mph or 107,000 kpm. Really astonishing when you think about it! 
  • If the moon were not exactly where it is, life could not sustain itself on earth! 
  • If the sun were any further or closer life would not inhabit our planet. 
  • If the earth did not have its exact electromagnetic field life could not exist as we know it. 
  • Sometimes we have to look close to home to understand what lies beyond! 
  • The earth has been preparing for our arrival for over four billion years!
Don't miss the recently added videos " Within Two Worlds, Astronomers Paradise" and "Temporal Distortion"!


Within Two Worlds 

“Within Two Worlds” was created by photographer Brad Goldpaint. The film features shooting comets, a giant tilting Milky Way, and glowing purple and pink auroras peeking over the horizon. Stunning sequences watch day turn to night and night to day, as overhead stars shine their beautiful light above mountains, forests, and waterfalls.



The Mountain 

The Mountain from TSO Photography on Vimeo.
This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.




Temporal Distortion 

This stunning time-lapse video by photographer Randy Halverson, set to a dramatic score by Bear McCreary. Temporal Distortion from Randy Halverson on Vimeo.
This is four minutes of some of the most breathtaking sky you’ve ever seen. Shot in South Dakota, Wisconsin, Utah and Colorado during the months of June, September and October 2011, the video is made up of multiple long-exposure photographs painstakingly combined into seamless footage, capturing the stars, sky and landscape together in a way that conventional video cameras cannot.



The Arctic Light 

The Arctic Light from TSO Photography on Vimeo.
This was filmed between 29th April and 10th May 2011 in the Arctic, on the archipelago Lofoten in Norway. My favorite natural phenomenon is one I do not even know the name of, even after talking to meteorologists and astrophysicists I am none the wiser.What I am talking about I have decided to call The Arctic Light and it is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun. The Sunset and Sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours. The sun is barely going below the horizon before coming up again. This is the most colorful light that I know, and the main reason I have been going up there for the last 4 years, at the exact same time of year, to photograph.






The Aurora 


The Aurora from TSO Photography on Vimeo.
I spent a week capturing one of the biggest aurora borealis shows in recent years. Shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia, at 70 degree north and 30 degrees east. Temperatures around -25 Celsius. Good fun.

The Northern Lights are one of nature's most spectacular visual phenomena, and in this time lapse video they provide a breathtaking display of light, shape, and color over the course of a single night in Norway.
