For 17 days I travelled solo around the entire island shooting almost 24 hours, sleeping in the car, and eating whenever I had the time. During my days shooting this film I shot 38,000 images, travelled some 2900 miles, and saw some of the most amazing, beautiful, and indescribable landscapes on the planet. 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.

Icelandic trolls (not the internet version, but the living breathing version) are night trolls, according to old folklore. That means that if they get caught in the sun, they will turn into stone. 

This is very unfortunate for them, but for us, it just means more of these incredible basalt (techno-speak for trolls) formations.
