White nights in Saint Petersburg. Timelapse & Hyyperlapse.

White nights in Saint Petersburg. Timelapse & Hyyperlapse.

St. Petersburg is a mecca of cultural, historical, and architectural landmarks. Founded by Tsar Peter I (the Great) as Russia’s “window on Europe,” it bears the unofficial status of Russia’s cultural capital and most European city, a distinction that it strives to retain in its perennial competition with Moscow.

Three distinctive characteristics of St. Petersburg engage attention. The first is the city’s harmonious mix of western European and Russian architecture. Second is St. Petersburg’s lack of an unequivocal city centre, which, in other Russian cities of medieval origin, is defined by a kremlin and its surrounding area. The third characteristic feature of the city is its many waterways. The short but full-flowing tributaries and canals of the Neva River that stretch to the Baltic coast are inseparable from St. Petersburg’s panorama. Many of the city’s most famed architectural sites stretch along the Neva’s historic embankments. Moreover, the bridges and natural canals of the river have earned St. Petersburg the nickname “Venice of the North.” Because of St. Petersburg’s northerly location, the city enjoys the “White Nights,” from June 11 to July 2, when daylight extends to nearly 19 hours—another of St. Petersburg’s most acclaimed characteristics. Among the cultural events devoted to celebrating the White Nights are the festivals organized by the Mariinsky and Hermitage theatres and the Rimsky-Korsakov St. Petersburg State Conservatory. Each night during the White Nights, the bridges spanning the Neva are raised to let boat traffic through. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, St. Petersburg imbibed a new energy as crumbling facades, potholed roads, and cultural landmarks were renovated.

Ролик снят в конце июня в замечательный период белых ночей и праздника “Алые Паруса”.

Прекрасный город на Неве Санкт-Петербург! Белые ночи, разводные мосты, множество различных исторических памятных мест. Недаром Санкт-Петербург именуют “Северной Венецией” и он для жителей России является ее культурной столицей.
Петербург – потрясающий город, который просто завораживает своей красотой и своим величием. Все те, кто хоть раз побывали здесь, непременно захотят ещё раз сюда вернутся. Это и не удивительно. В городе в основном преобладает облачная погода, частенько бывает пасмурно, но и солнечные деньки здесь можно наблюдать. Известной особенностью, привлекающей ежегодно множество туристов являются “Белые Ночи”. Застать их можно с конца мая по середину июля. Особенно интересно в такие ночи наблюдать за разводом мостов. Это просто непередаваемое зрелище.
Хотелось бы отдельно обратить ваше внимание на дворец в Царском Селе, где хранится всем известная и уникальная Янтарная комната. К ней предъявлен особый уход, это единственная комната во дворце, где запрещена фото и видео съёмка для предотвращения порчи янтаря. Она просто ослепляет тебя тёплым светом янтаря. Каждая комнатка, каждый её уголочек каждого дворца будто спешит тебе поведать свою историю о том, что она повидала за столько веков.
Центром музея-заповедника является Екатерининский дворец, выполненный Ф.Б. Растрелли в стиле русского барокко. Восхищают роскошью Большой зал дворца и ряд парадных залов.
Другим образцом мировой архитектуры является Александровский дворец, выполненный в стиле классицизма. Комнаты императора Николая II и его супруги Александры Федоровны оформлены в стиле модерн.
Неотъемлемой частью музея-заповедника “Царское Село” являются его парки – Екатерининский и Александровский общей площадью 300 гектаров. В парках Пушкина расположено более 100 архитектурных сооружений – дворцы, павильоны, мосты, мраморные монументы, подражающие готической, турецкой, китайской архитектуре.
Петербург – первый город России, который чуть ли не с основания стал развиваться по заранее разработанному плану (первый план города датирован 1716). Это определило высокий градостроительный уровень и способствовало формированию городских ансамблей, характерных для конца 18 – начала 19 вв.

Jawai – A Tale of Humans, Landscapes and Wildlife

Jawai – A Tale of Humans, Landscapes and Wildlife

Rarely have I been moved that deeply by a travel experience as it was the case when I visited the area of Jawai in Rajasthan, India. The raw beauty of the landscape, the inhabitants, the way they live their lifes in harmony with the wildlife of this area, and how their deep rooted culture and spiritual belief helped to conserve the biodiversity.

This is one of the rare places on earth where wild leopards and humans live together in peace.

I am very grateful to my friend Parag, who showed me this exceptional area. We had less than 48 hours to experience the place, yet I was completely fascinated. This is a magical land – an emotion which I am trying to convey by this film.

I hope that it stays this way – hence a somewhat sad undertone. You have to invest a little bit of time into this film, but I hope it is worth it for you!

Some foley and the sounddesign was made by my brother Stefan Machu – a big thank you goes to you!

Inari, Finland

Inari, Finland

This time-lapse is my tribute to the amazing nature and northern lights of Finnish Lapland.

Far above the Arctic Circle, the landscape alternates between extremes. In the nightless nights of summer, the sun doesn’t set for two months, while in the winter everything is covered in snow and frozen darkness. Fortunately at least the aurora borealis bring some color into our lives with their regular displays of light.

All the clips were shot within a few kilometers of Inari, which has been my home for the last two years. This video is also my farewell, because I’m soon leaving. My very next project is a 5-year journey around the world by bicycle:
