Magical Iceland

This short film was shot during May and June of 2013 in Iceland. The trip was how I celebrated my college graduation and my one year anniversary of buying a camera. I lived in my car for four weeks, driving as it rained and shooting when the weather permitted. Almost all of the shots were taken between 10:30 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. as the Midnight Sun glowed golden and pink. In total, I shot roughly 40,000 pictures and drove about 3000 miles. Iceland is a breathtaking country and there were so many places I failed to capture but remain a humbling part of my trip.

“There is something about doing this sort of stuff that just makes you want to keep coming back for more and more. Maybe it’s the experience of being out there at one with the incredible beauty of this landscape. Maybe it’s the challenge of capturing it in the camera in the way that you witnessed it. Maybe it’s the excitement of seeing just what you got when you finally render it all out. Maybe it’s the satisfaction you get out of showing this to other people. Most probably it’s a combination of all these things.”

  1. Taxi service from Delhi to Punjab makes sure that you get the vehicle of your choice. With a wide range of luxurious and classy vehicles you can arrive in style in anywhere you want. Just make sure to book early to make no compromises.

  2. We nonetheless recall how i went my Volkswagen on the tracks with Tropical isle 5 in the past. This surroundings is usually attributing this type of spectacular feeling that you simply travel.

  3. Beautiful shots! I was in Iceland this summer as well and thought it was one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited (I think that way about most places I visit, but it IS true for Iceland!) I have several posts on some of Iceland’s beautiful sights and cultural events on my blog as well – a great supplement to your beautiful photography! 🙂
