Iceland is one of those fascinating places you have a hard time believing they actually exist. Even when you’re there, you keep feeling in the middle of a dream and have to pinch yourself to prove you’re awake.

Filmmaker Jesse Yang visited the island last May and June and took the Ring Road, one of the most popular itineraries. Along the way, he saw snow, waterfalls, beaches, lakes, and glaciers. He captured them with his camera to create this beautiful video in which the sounds of nature mix with music and images to recreate the country’s captivating atmosphere.
