Video of the stunning landscapes of Iceland from a bird's eye view
Videographer Garðar Ólafsson has created a beautiful video with drone footage from around Iceland. Mountains, lava fields, glaciers, rivers, waterfalls and horses. The short film is called “Powerful Iceland”, and follows a second film with the same title which Garðar posted to Video sharing sites earlier this fall. That video received Vimeo's "Staff pick"
According to Garðar's web page the locations in the video are:
Þórsmörk National Park
Landmannalaugar Hiking Trail
The Blue Lagoon
Jökulsárlón / Glacier Lagoon
The first "Powerful Iceland" video is no less powerful than the second.
The locations in the second video are:
Vík í Mýrdal
Sólheimasandur (DC-3 Plane)
