Northern Lights Storm in Iceland

This short film, Eye of the Storm is set in Iceland. Storms of all kinds form in Iceland with, sand, ash, snow, rain and solar being the most common. Storms often demonstrate the power of nature and its effects on our planet Earth. Natures mystery is unveiled when we see the landscapes created from They reveal nature’s beauty and its hand in creating the landscapes visible today. This compilation was filmed in Iceland between February and March of 2014 when a phenomenal solar flare and coronal mass ejection collided with Earth’s atmosphere. The northern lights emanating from particles colliding with the atmosphere are just supernatural in appearance. Enjoy!

Churchill Blizzard Continues Raging

A hellacious blizzard is continuing to bury Churchill with heavy, drifting snow. People have been advised to remain inside and stay safe until the weather lets up sometime on Thursday. In many cases leaving the house isn’t a choice as snow buried any access to doorways anyway. Northern lights will obviously be obscured for awhile as the storm rages on. This is by far one of the most incredible storms in a long time that the town of Churchill has experienced! Stay safe and hopefully the newly updated Hydro system will keep power on!

Churchill Boreal Forest Beauty

These boreal forest images with the glow of the receding sun in the background gives an aura and feel only the Arctic can provide. Trees in the north define the landscape in such a way we only can understand by experiencing the north firsthand. The cold air and snow on the ground and trees gives the eyes and mind a different perspective that the photos transcend. Churchill photographer Alex De Vries – Magnifico has refined his style to capture that distinct Arctic feel by continually searching for those subtle details of the region that make it unique in the world.
