Time-lapse Photography by Doug Urquhart (www.UPTHINK.TV) The story behind ICELANDIA: Iceland is a land of many geological wonders. In celebration of our 3-year wedding anniversary, Karen and I travelled to Iceland for two weeks of relaxation and exploration together. I documented parts of our trip with time-lapse photography in an attempt to share our experiences with others. The midnight sun had passed (as well as the tourist high season) and the nights were rapidly becoming longer as we transitioned into the month of September. Although the Solar Maximum is just around the corner, the auroral activity was very low for a majority of our travels. After 11 nights of cloudy conditions and an unexpected geomagnetic flat-line, we were eventually treated to a stunning Aurora show over the lesser travelled shore of Jökulsárlón that lasted for a majority of the night. We started our adventure in Reykjavik around 7am on Sunday, August 26th, 2012. From Reykjavik we travelled to the West Fjords, Troll Peninsula, Mývatn, Askja, Vatnajökull, Landmannalaugar and everywhere else in between that we could reach before our departure back to our home in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, September 8th, 2012. We camped for a majority of the trip and slept comfortably thanks to the bomber www.TheNorthFace.com Mountain 25 tent. Thanks to Icelandair, Go Iceland Car Rental, Room with a View, Kirkjubol in Bjarnardalur, Grettislaug, Fossholl Guesthouse, Vogafjos-Guesthouse, Dreki Hut, Hotel Skogar, Guesthouse Skálafell, Guy Thorsby for the Mountain 25 tent, Jim & Margi Urquhart for watching our Siberian Huskies, Jennifer Rice-Morton, Paul Zizka for the beta and anyone else who helped us along the way. Huge thanks to Ríkharðour for the late-night assistance when our suv got stuck. This short montage was created using a minimalist time-lapse set-up that travelled in one backpack.
