A timelapse video is a form of storytelling, without placing “borders” that words might do. It brings out the magnificence of nature, creating strong emotions to the viewer.
Iceland is said to be the Mekas landscape for photographers. It is considered as the country of fascinating contrasts. Broadly known as "The Land of Fire and Ice", it is home to both a portion of the biggest ice sheets in Europe, and probably the most active volcanoes on the planet.
Iceland is the place where there is light and dimness, where long summer days with almost 24-hours of daylight are counterbalanced by short winter days.
Icelandic scenenery still remains for all intents and purposes untouched by human progress.

Media & Awards
"Time-lapse photography at its best" - Camera Zeiss Lenses
"a 4K timelapse masterpiece" - Sony Alpha Universe
"Whispering Iceland adds a dimension of drama that helps make it unique. Fast camera motion mixed with rack zooms and quick cuts work together to show Iceland as equal parts beautiful and desolate, a landscape that is somehow welcoming and inhospitable at the same time" - Digital Trends
