Super-sharp 4k video, in the right hands, is powerful technology. Witness the grandeur of New Zealand's dreamlike landscapes, brought straight to you by Martin Heck.

This painstaking timelapse was shot over four months in some of the most remote locations across New Zealand. Those infinite skies, hulking mountains, and crystalline waters could make even the most avowed city kid pine for the fjords.

No wonder they filmed the Lord of the Rings movies here—the landscape looks more like fantasy than reality. [Martin Heck]
