Video editor Nicholas Buer shot and stitched together this awesome time-lapse sequence of the coast around Norway's Lofoten islands, including some stunning footage of the Northern Lights.
In a posting on YouTube, Buer claims he had originally intended to hike into the islands' interior and photograph the landscape from the vantage of some of its many peaks. 
 
However, an unexpected heavy snowfall made it too dangerous to brave the inland trails, so he ended up staying on the coast and photographing the waters under different conditions.
 
The result, which he has called simply 'The Quiet', is certainly mesmerising. 
 
"It just goes to show that when you think you are down on your luck, something beautiful and unexpected can still happen," he wrote.
