Expedition to Iceland for Timelapse Photography

In June 2013, photographer Eric Hines embarked on a 17-day, 4,000-mile adventure across Iceland, which he dubbed “Expedition Iceland.” The resulting timelapse video features stunning examples of the country’s rugged natural beauty:

Some of the still shots from the presentation can be viewed below. The whole project was shot  using a Canon 5D Mark III.

“I’ve always wanted to visit Iceland, and I had to take the opportunity when it came up. Sleeping in the passenger seat of a small SUV and living off mostly gas station food, it was all worth it. The country was absolutely stunning and I certainly hope to spend more time there again.”

The trip also resulted in plenty of behind-the-scenes photos. For his motion-control equipment, Hines used a Kessler Crane CineDrive.
