The summer days in Iceland are long and sometimes referred to as "endless". The sun doesn't fully set which is a photographer's dream. The slow sunsets and sunrises make incredible pictures and timelapse videos in this case. If you are looking to catch the "midnight sun" in Reykjavik this occurs between the 16th and the 29th of June. During the winter months it is the exact opposite. The days are dark and the sun only comes out for a couple hours. The video is a beautiful display of colors and icelandic scenery. It also highlights the various waterfalls and landscapes you will come across if you travel around the island.
In the beginning of the video there is a shot of the colorful houses you will find in both Iceland and Greenland. The tradition of the brightly colored houses in Greenland started because of practical reasons and indicated the function of that building. Commercial houses were red, hospitals were yellow, police stations were black, telephone companies were green and fish factories were blue. You can also find colorful houses and roofs in Iceland if you travel to the top of the church, Hallgrimskirkja, in the middle of their main city, Reykjavik.
This timelapse video of Iceland successfully captures the beauty that Iceland has to offer in the month of August. It shows you glaciers, mountains, rivers and waterfalls that cover the island. If you visit during the summer months this video is an excellent preview of what you might witness.
This fun little video is a must-see. The way Joerg Daiber filmed it through what is called a timelapse/tilt shift method made Toronto look miniature, like a toy city. It's both funny and incredibly creative and overall very entertaining to watch. Take a look, you'll find yourself thoroughly amused and laughing out loud.
