In this video I have footage from my trip to Iceland.
After a photography workshop on the ring road, I drove to the Snaefellsjokull/Snæfellsjokull National Park, located on the Snaefellsnes/Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
When I stopped at a gas station before entering the park, I was told to avoid this drive, but I did it anyway. I am so glad I did it! There were so few people around!
What an amazing place to explore! In one of the clips, you can see snow blocking the road!
Just for this video, I purchased this track by Rameses B featuring poet Alan Watts via Lickd.
