Watch the amazing icelandic Midnight Sun, shot in 4K


Award winning filmmaker and photographer based in Los Angeles Henry Jun Wah Lee released his new stunning work shot in Iceland, tagged with our Best of 2015 mention with pleasure.

A few words on this video, in its Vimeo description:

The light during midnight sun is a surreal and unforgettable experience. Hues of pinks, purples, reds and oranges that you may be lucky to see for a few minutes during a normal sunrise/sunset can explode for hours in an epic display of nature’s masterful artistry.
Shot over two weeks from late June through early July in Iceland, finding the best spots to experience these conditions was not easy. We had to navigate Iceland’s fickle weather. The southern half of the island was storming most of the time. Knowledge of the island’s various micro climates and scenic locations were important in figuring out where to go for any given night. So was staying mobile and keeping all options open. Each day was a new and unexpected adventure.
Over the course of the trip, we covered most of Iceland’s varied landscapes, traveling a complete loop on the ring road as well as spending time in the central highlands in the middle of the island.
You’ll see scenes from Snaefellsnes peninsula in the west and various mountains and coastal areas in the north, to the fjords in the east and the Vatnajökull glacier region in the south. Perhaps the most unexpected of all was catching the large plumes of clouds being generated by the cooling lava from last year’s volcanic eruption in Bárðarbunga.
In the end, the odyssey is about the journey and its experiences rather than about the destination.
