It’s been a long while since I’ve posted anything here, and what better way to change that than a mesmerizing showcase of Iceland!
Tobi Schnorpfeil is a German filmmaker and triathlete who recently shot his journey on Iceland’s ‘Ring Road’. The ‘Ring Road’, also called Route 1, is a 1,332 km road that runs around the island and connects most of the inhabited parts of Iceland.
Shot over a period of two weeks, Tobi captured the mystical landscapes, rugged terain and icy blue waterfalls of Iceland in a manner that generates curiosity and leaves the viewer in awe of nature.
What makes the documentation stand out even more is the cinematography that’s gone into making the video. Tobi uses an Alpha 7s to shoot most of the footage with a large number of wide pans captured with the DJI Phantom III drone.
The video gets an original sound track by JMComposing and surprisingly enough, Tobi talks the viewer through the video, rather than just music playing in the background.
For the explorer in each of us, ‘Iceland’ is the perfect motivational piece to get out of our comfort zone and travel to the distant and far out reaches of the world.
