Riku Karjalainen, a 18-year old senior high school student from Kajaani, Finland, amassed more than 5000 miles on the road, taking 23,000 pictures at 21 different locations, to create this stunning 4-minute time-lapse video!

He spent almost every other weekend, for three months, taking the still-photos, and spent another month putting it all together. Most of the locations were from northern Finland (Lapland).
Photography is at this point a hobby for Riku, his ambition is to get into the aviation field.
There is a 3.5 minute Behind-the-Scenes video on YouTube about Rikus project:
