Beautiful Time-Lapse of Icelandic Volcano

When Sean Stiegemeier saw the photos and videos that were emerging on the web from the eruptions at Eyjafjallajökull last month, it prompted him to fly over and shoot his own footage:

So I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get.

The resulting video is stunningly beautiful, especially with background music by Jónsi (lead singer of Icelandic band Sigur Rós). Oh, and by the way, it was filmed with a Canon 5D Mark II.


Thanks for the tip, @eugenephoto!
