MIDNIGHT SUN : The sun warbles on the horizon but never fully sets. A natural phenomenon north of the Arctic Circle, the sun remains visible 24 hours a day in the summer months. In a land of shifting ice, where night is day and the stars don’t emerge for months at a time, images of beauty and transformation are captured by filmmakers.
This time lapse film was shot during the Icelandic Midnight Sun in June of 2011
The filmmaker says of ‘Midnight Sun’
‘For 17 days I travelled solo around the entire island shooting almost 24 hours, sleeping in the car, and eating whenever I had the time. During my days shooting this film I shot 38,000 images, traveled some 2900 miles, and saw some of the most amazing, beautiful, and indescribable landscapes on the planet.’
