Ísland í Vetur (Iceland in Winter), a romantic journey by Ben Powell

I received a message on Twitter yesterday from Ben Powell who put together a beautiful video that I though I’d share.

To celebrate 3 years together, my girlfriend and I decided to have a long weekend away and visit Reykjavik in Iceland. Despite the cold and wet weather, we were absolutely blown away by this beautiful country and will definitely be returning! This video was shot entirely on my Canon 600d (w/ Sigma 10-20mm, Canon 55-250mm and Canon 50mm) as well as my GoPro HD Hero 2. I edited it using Premier Pro and After Effects.

I love the personal aspect of this, that the video documents a real journey shared by two people. Seeing this footage just makes me so excited to get to Reykjavík tomorrow, and to have the ability to see the things that are featured in the video. Iceland is so multi-faceted and I can’t wait to experience it for myself.
