Filmed over 2 weeks in Iceland, March 2014. A journey into the shadows of ice caves and lights of the Aurora. The caves are a beautiful blue, awash in glacier-filtered sunlight. And the Northern Lights set the sky on fire - it's quite a moment standing before something so cosmic.
I had originally imagined this would be a cold and horrible trip, but... the desolate landscape was so simple it was perhaps the most beautiful place I'd been to. That's not to say it wasn't cold - especially in the second week, a snowstorm hit and the car got stuck in snow amidst hail and wind. Pushing & hauling were indeed necessary! Drying snow-soaked socks with the hairblower was also fun.
There is a surprise ending. After setting up the tripod, I began to take a photo of ourselves... when suddenly, I "found" something on the ground... ;) It may not make the ice melt, but almost certainly your heart.
