Elemental Iceland – stunning timelapse video by Stian Rekdal

elemental-iceland-stunning-timelapse-video-by-stian-rekdal

Norwegian photographer Stian Rekdal drove nearly 5 500 kilometers on his last month's trip to Iceland and took over 40 000 photos on the way. 3 500 of them were used to create this showcase of Iceland's natural beauty.

The glacier lagoon of Jökulsarlón with the floating icebergs was perhaps my favorite spot from the whole trip, he said in an interview for Natural Geographic which featured his video last week.

  1. There is something seriously wrong with this video. First it starts out playing very glitchy before it completely freezes…just stops playing! Then the whole page freezes up! Had to use task manager to close the page, then open it again to post this. Please fix it!
