Midnight Sun

This may be the most beautiful video I’ve ever seen. It’s hard to believe such wonders really exist in this world of ours. Even though I’ve watched this short film a few times now, each time it doesn’t fail to amaze me and literally take my breath away. It looks as though it’s about time the world finds out about the gorgeousness that is Iceland.

This magic was captured thanks to Joe Capra on a 17 day solo trip during Iceland’s Midnight Sun. “Midnight Sun: A natural phenomenon occurring in the summer months north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle where the sun never fully sets and remains visible 24 hours a day.” Click here to go to the video and find out more.

When I first saw the stills on Cohabitaire, I thought they were paintings and had to see it to believe it. You’ll be missing out if you don’t do the same. High definition and fullscreen required. Sit back, marvel, and dream about your future trip to Iceland.
