Me, Haukur, Christopher and John recently drove around Iceland. We started driving east to Skaftafell, then to Atlavík in Hallormstaðaskógur, trough Egilstaðir and around the northeast circle Þórshöfn, Raufarhöfn and Kópasker. From there we drove to Ásbyrgi, over to Mývatn, Akureyri and finally 4th of july we arrived in Haukur´s hometown Ísafjörður, the last stop of the trip. This roadtrip was a perfect opportunity to film with our new toys. We were shooting on the Sony NXCAM, Canon 7D, Canon 350D for timelapse and the Sony SR1 for behind scenes clips.
