Swedish photographer Kalle Ljun used a drone and a GoPro to capture this amazing video as he and his father sailed to Antarctica in a 46-foot boat and spent 16 days exploring.

“I really tried to capture the big picture of what it was like down there,” Ljun told Wired. “I wanted to show the beauty but also the loneliness.

Ljung shot more than 250 minutes of footage during the trip.

When he returned home, Ljung had no plans to promote the film, but it took off when he uploaded a segment to Instagram and tagged it with #FilmConvert, the software he used to edit. FilmConvert sent it out on its channels, and the clip gained traction. It has racked up more than 913,000 views so far.
