Did you know that Breakdance was originally a Finnish invention?
Finnish freediver Johanna Nordblad holds the world record for a 50-meter dive under ice. She discovered her love for the sport through cold-water treatment while recovering from a downhill biking accident that almost took her leg. British director and photographer Ian Derry captures her taking a plunge under the Arctic ice.
“This time lapse was shot mostly in October 2015 during a few great periods of particularly active aurora borealis. All locations are around Inari in Lapland, Finland.
In real life the auroras are usually a little less bright and vivid, and they move a lot slower than this. Nevertheless, the sight of them is truly amazing and not something you can easily get bored of! Inari is far enough north that you can see northern lights nearly every night. Provided it isn’t too cloudy, of course.
I shot everything with a Nikon D610 + Samyang 14mm 2.8, and edited in Lightroom and DaVinci Resolve.”
