Sean Stiegemeier | Icelandic Vulcano, time-lapse film

Please view this pearl in full screen!

Filmmaker and Photographer Sean Stiegemeier traveled to Iceland at the end of april to shoot a time-lapse film of Eyjafjallajökull, the vulcano which has caused the biggest shutdown of airspace in Europe since World War II.

In his own words:
“So I saw all of these mediocre pictures of that volcano in Iceland nobody can pronounce the name of, so I figured I should go and do better. But the flights to get over took forever as expected (somewhat). 4 days after leaving I finally made it, but the weather was terrible for another 4. Just before leaving it got pretty good for about a day and a half and this is what I managed to get. Wish I had more time. I missed all the cool Lightning and the Lava of the first eruption. But I figure this will just be a trial run for another day.”

Got inspired? Sean will be helping teach a time-lapse workshop in Iceland in August!
