Incredible New Zealand Timelapse: Awakening

Martin Heck of Timestorm Films spent four months roaming around the backwoods of New Zealand. He didn’t just set out to explore and privately enjoy the amazing scenery of the expansive mountains and deep fjords, although that was an added bonus. His goal was to share the island’s natural beauty through photography. What he came up with was an incredible timelapse series:

In Part I of IV of his New Zealand series, Heck really submerges the viewer into the ever-changing landscapes. We get a real sense of what it was like to hike through the mountains, travel the island’s remote areas, see the stars in a truly natural setting without light pollution, and just be at peace.
