The Sami People call it the ‘blue time’ – the period in winter when the sun doesn’t rise above the horizon in northern areas of Scandinavia. Jeff Allen visits northern Norway every year, in both winter and summer, to break out of the world of credit cards and double glazing that society has become and explore the breath-taking wilderness and coastline by sea kayak with longtime friend Bjørn Eines. In more recent years, he has taken up dog sledding under the experienced wing of Tore Albrigtsen and now guides expeditions to the region to let others witness the beauty of his favourite place on earth.

4K Dreamy landscapes from above Norway
In April of this year, a couple of adventure-seeking friends and I took off to Norway from LAX. I knew what to expect based on Google images and travel blogs but I also know how easy it can be to sell a location by a photo or two. The thing about Norway is that the sights I enjoyed the most were usually en route to our destinations – things that weren’t already pitched to me in internet photographs. The routes we drove had more tunnels and bridges than what I have encountered in a lifetime. We were constantly crossing over bodies of water (fjords!) and driving through mountains that were too massive to drive over or around. Each time our car emerged from a tunnel, the light would bring us a new majestic environment, one after another. I jokingly compared this phenomenon as watching a television that only subscribed to nature channels, and each time we went into a tunnel, we were changing the channel. This said, I bring you the N O R W A Y channel – a montage of footage taken on the route between Oslo and Bergen, but mainly up north around Lofoten.

The day I first set foot on Mount Seymour, I knew it would have a lasting profound impact on me. Located on Vancouver’s North Shore, the mountain looks down over the vibrant and pulsing city to the South, while the Coast Mountains stretch endlessly to the North. For 3 years, I returned on and off to seek inspiration, and to shoot as much timelapse as possible. Every time, I found a new and unique display of magic. I never tire of seeing the lights, the colours, the sunrise, the sunset, and just sitting back at peace above the world. This is the culmination of years of practice, countless pounds of equipment carried, many sleepless nights, and 100s of hours of editing. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: The Mount Seymour Backcountry is a wilderness area. If you are planning on hiking or camping in the park, make sure you are familiar with the park’s own rules regarding human activities env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/mt_seymour/. Even if you are going on a day hike, it is crucial to carry the 10 essentials and leave a detailed trip plan with someone reliable northshorerescue.com/education/what-to-bring/. There have been far too many rescues in the North Shore over the past few years. With proper preparation and knowledge, the beauty of these mountains is available for all to enjoy.
I’ve been lucky enough to spend a lot of time on Hawaii growing up. My most recent trip there I brought along my camera gear and a quadcopter. It was great to get a birds-eye view of the changing landscapes around the island.

All shots around the local children at the pier were filmed with my second Phantom fitted with prop guards for extra caution.
This was shot on my holiday (yes my passion is also my job!) alongside some stuff for my GH4 review. Koh Yao Noi is one of the least developed islands in Thailand despite being right in the middle of the most touristic bay there. It’s a little haven of real Thailand with just 18km of roads.
