Photographer’s Time-Lapse Footage of Iceland Is the Most Beautiful Thing You’ll See Today

Bleak, unearthly and stunning

Photographer Stian Rekdai's gorgeous collection of time-lapse images of Iceland is so incredible, it could easily be a tourism ad—or a sales clip for the equipment he used. Rekdai and crew spent three weeks in September wandering around Iceland, taking pictures with Nikon cameras and lenses, then using LRTimelapse, Adobe Lightroom and Adobe After Effects for all the postproduction stuff. The end result is a bright, vibrant piece of work that really shows off Iceland's harrowing beauty, which sometimes borders on unearthly.
