24 Hours Of Light In 3 Minutes

32-year-old Norwegian photographer Terje Sorgjerd spent 12 days in the Arctic circle, island hopping in Lofoten, Norway. He fell into freezing waters twice. He plummeted from a rock. He was hospitalized for his injuries. But he emerged from his trip with some stunning footage of the midnight sun - a unique phenomenon where the sun stays visible for 24 hours straight. The midnight sun only occurs in latitudes around the Arctic circle, and only during the summer months.

Terje turned the footage into this amazing time-lapse video. There are no photoshop adjustments. This is just perfect light in its purest, rawest form.
