If you like well-made travel videos featuring some of the Earth’s most stunning landscapes, then you’ll love this timelapse titled Midnight Sun | Iceland from SCIENTIFANTASTIC. Midnight Sun is “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.” To put this layman’s terms, it’s a state of permanent sunset.
The video explores this during the videographer’s 17-day trip to Iceland. Traveling 2,900 miles, Joe Capra slept in his car, only eating when he had time, and procured 38,000 images. He says, “Iceland is absolutely one of the most beautiful and unusual places you could ever imagine. Especially during the Midnight Sun when the quality of light hitting the landscape is very unusual, and very spectacular.”
