  • Vestrahorn mountain One of the most photographed and magnificient mountains in Iceland, Vestrahorn, east of the town of Höfn in S.E. Iceland. Photo/Screenshot from video, see below.

Photographer and filmmaker Nick Konstostavlakis has made a beautiful video of time-lapse photographs from Iceland, “Whispering Iceland”. The stunning video captures how the arctic sun plays a role in the dramatic experience created by Iceland‘s landscapes.

Nick describes how Iceland, a place of 24-hour long summer days, when the sun doesn‘t set, and short winter days with only a few hours of sunlight, is the Mecca of photographers. The video certainly bears out this judgement!
