Nordic by Nature
I’ve never had much of a desire to go to Iceland – not least of all because my fallback career in food service looks like it would be a total bitch there. But then I saw a time lapse video of Iceland posted by The Cultureist, and it made me want to buy long johns and a plane ticket immediately. It is pants-droppingly gorgeous. (Also Iceland is close to Sweden, which is populated entirely by members of the Skarsgard family.)
Time-lapse photographer SCIENTIFANTASTIC shot for 17 days during Iceland’s Midnight Sun phenomenon, which provides almost six hours daily of “golden light” – every photographer’s dream. (Check out scientifantastic’s time lapse of Rio, too – also breathtaking!)
Watch in full screen for the full effect. My favorite moments are at 1:01, 2:04 and 2:28.
