VIDEO: A drone homage to Iceland, land of water and light

Iceland Monitor reader David Leiter has kindly sent us this spectacular video featuring drone footage of some of Iceland’s most beautiful natural landscapes.

Leiter visited Iceland earlier this year and used drone technology to capture some stunning images, which have been woven together with an atmospheric backing track to form this wonderful video.

The vivid colours and light are a tonic in these dark winter days. Enjoy!
