Videographer Garðar Ólafsson has created a beautiful video with drone footage from around Iceland. Mountains, lava fields, glaciers, rivers, waterfalls and horses. The short film is called “Powerful Iceland”, and follows a second film with the same title which Garðar posted to Video sharing sites earlier this fall. That video received Vimeo's "Staff pick"
