How many arduous slideshows of your friends’ trips to Iceland have you had to sit through? Too many, right? After watching this stunning collection of timelapses that Martin Heck captured while briefly touring the country, I’m officially drawing the line and raising the bar when it comes to Icelandic vacation videos I’m willing to endure.
Shooting with a brand new Nikon D850, Heck managed to turn the country into a living renaissance painting, even while the weather was cloudy and overcast. He was also able to capture some spectacular footage of the Aurora Borealis, which could redeem even the most boring of vacation videos—even though this one was far from it.
