Vimeo user Alessandro Della Bella who is situated in Switzerland has created these wonderful, scenic time lapse videos titled Helvetia by Night. As described in his words,
‘Helvetia by Night’ is a time-lapse project about Switzerland by night. Short videos of long nights present you the stunning beauty of the Swiss Alps and show you the magic of a spectacular nighttime sky. Imagine watching a slide-show at fast speed or looking at a flip book. It is photography turning into a movie. Everything in the videos is real and happening out there while most of us are sleeping.
I visited Switzerland in 2005 and looking at Alessandro’s photography brought back those memories. Zurich is a visual treat for the eyes, in-fact Switzerland is indeed heavenly but I’ve found myself amazed by every city I have traveled to, except London 😐 Another story for another day.
Tonight, hop on a stunning (free) ride across Switzerland, courtesy of the amazing Alessandro.
You should definitely read Alessandro’s synopsis and remarks about special scenes throughout the video.
