Young photographer films the best of Norway

Northern lightsPhotographer Martin Rustad has travelled 15.000 km  to make a timelapse video that shows the best of Norway's nature. In only four days the video has been viewed by half a million people. 

"Norway is every photgrapher's dream," says the 21-year old photographer, who also studies business management at the University of Essex in England. His project started as a dream of experiencing his home country, and take pictures of the best Norway has to offer.  

The result is timelapse video that has already been viewed by 500.000 people.

"Some people have told me that they just want to pack their bags and travel to Norway after seeing it. Right now the video lives a life of its own," Rustad tells NRK.

He has made several foreign friends at university, and he wanted to show them the country where he is from. Rustad started planning his journey through Norway about a year ago, and completed the trip during his summer holiday.

"I have wanted to travel around in Norway and take pictures. Norway is every photographer's dream. We are known to be one of the best places in the world to take pictures. We have everything from the Nordic lights to the midnight sun, and we also have fantastic nature with fjord, mountains and plains," Rustad explains.

Rustad's video can be viewed here.
