Sure the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have an amazing camera with all sorts of improvements to make stunning use of in the pursuit of the perfect high-definition time-lapse or slow motion video.

But the video (below) is so stunning, so amazingly beautiful – there’s no way you’re going to be able to pull this off on your iPhone 6, no matter how amazing Apple’s latest gadget is.

The folks at Rustad Media have produced this utterly breathtaking time-lapse video in Norway, pulling in footage from an almost 10,000 mile trip across five months. They filmed across all of Norway’s 19 counties from the extreme south to the northeastern Russian border.

“The aim of this 5 minute short film is to show the variety of Norway,” write the filmmakers, “everything from the deep fjords in the Southwest, to the moon landscape in the North, the Aurora Borealis (Nothern Lights) and the settlements and cities around the country, both in summer and wintertime.”

The video includes amazingly scenic Norway locations, including Lofoten, Senja, Helgelandskysten, Geirangerfjorden, Nærøyfjorden and Preikestolen. The soundtrack is made by another Norwegian, composer Jogeir Daae Mæland.

Now I want to travel to Norway and use my slo-mo iPhone 6 camera to film.
