Beautiful time lapse videography in the Yukon – September. 2013
In September 2013 I (David McColm) headed to the Yukon with my buddy Jon Paine for 11 days of discovery. Most of this movie was shot during our 5 nights camping in Tombstone Territorial Park as well as along the Dempster & Alaska highways. While we experienced everything from driving rain, wind & snow (in the alpine), when the skies cleared and then the northern lights came out … well, there are few words that do justice to such an experience. I’ll just start with ‘mind.blown’! On a personal note, to be able to share it with Jon added immensely to the experience – not only was he the chief cook and bottle washer, he was a great sport & simply fun to hang out with – especially on the not so sunny days! And thank you Sue for loaning his skills to me!
The Yukon is now under my skin and I will be back for many years to come. See you in 2014 – with possibly a few others 🙂
