Mountains in Motion: The Canadian Rockies is a short documenting the life of the alpine landscape through time-lapse photography. In an effort to highlight the wildness of these mountain places and how they have inspired explorers of the past, present and future, sequences were from exposed summits; by glacial lakes; and under aurora-filled skies.
