Today was the best day in Iceland yet. We were really hoping to get clear skies to film, and when we did it was simply spectacular.
Driving down the road, the skies broke and we immediately jumped out of the superjeep to start flilming as the clouds lifted above these cliffs.
The great thing about Iceland is that there is amazing scenery everywhere—the farms in the countryside are full of structures like this an even some Viking ruins, which made for some pretty good shots on film.
Today we also had our first real superjeep experience on the black beaches of Iceland. It literally looked like the surface of the moon; kilometers and kilometers of black sand and windblown dunes. We could only imagine what the crew of this old US Military plane crash could have been thinking when they saw where they were.
After the scenes at the black beach, we headed up the Katla Volcano on Myrdalsjokull and the cloud ceiling lifted perfectly for us. We did some amazing time lapse shots at the summit looking over the Eyjafjallajokull volcano and celebrated an awesome expedition so far.
