Home / Funny / Viral / Incredible Timelapse Of Greenland Icebergs Shows The Seasonal Evolution


One of the most amazing sights in the area may be implied by the name of the town of Ilulissat, Greenland, which is located 220 miles north of the Arctic Circle. The Kalaallisut word for icebergs is "Ilulissat," and the nearby Ilulissat Icefjord provides a front-row seat to the annual migration of these ice mammoths. This region was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. Now, a mesmerising time-lapse film by Danish photographer Jonas Høholt shows the world this area through the passage of icebergs under the vast arctic skies.

For thousands of years, the Sermeq Kujalleq glacier has broken and shed the icebergs that make up this region. Høholt posts on YouTube, "The sheer magnitude of the Ilulissat Icefjord, its icebergs, and their journey planted a deep fascination in me." "The sense of being a mere speck in a world largely ruled by nature got its grip on me, along with the distant sounds of icebergs cracking, squeaking, and rumbling." 

Høholt spent four months living in Ilulissat when he took these time-lapse photos. He clarified, "Aside from taking care of my primary duties in the town, I seized the chance to share my impressions of the seasonal changes from summer to winter around the iconic ice fjord just south of Ilulissat." "I naturally found purpose in using my time-lapse skills, which I've been honing over the course of more than ten years, to record footage for a personal project that combines my four months of travel in the area with the seasonal change of the Arctic autumn."

His film depicts the transition from summer to the onset of winter. The icebergs first parade in front of the vibrant villages of Greenland under bright skies, and then at night they move with the aurora borealis. Remarkably, icebergs can rise up to fifteen stories above the ocean as the cold sets in.

Høholt believes that this project's creations bring to light insights into how the environment and the human spirit are always changing. He writes, "It reminds me of the impermanence of life, the ever-changing icebergs." "It encourages me to cherish every moment."
