These translation in the Sagas of the Icelanders from a thousand years ago, from the Vineland Sagas, The Prose Edda and the Poetry Edda, give us today access to a rich world often obscured to us.
The publication of these volumes is a reminder that the Icelandic Sagas can hold their own with the literature of the Mediterranean." ---Seamus Heaney, Nobel Laureate, 1995

Enrique Pacheco took 12 trips to Iceland to shoot this stunning video of the Aurora Borealis.
From Eric Hines' video page:
Expedition Iceland is a collection of some of my favorite shots I did around Iceland during my 17 day, 4000 mile adventure around the country during the midnight sun in June 2013. This personal piece was shot entirely using the Canon 5D Mark III and only a few different Canon lenses.
I've always wanted to visit Iceland, and I had to take the opportunity when it came up. Sleeping in the passenger seat of a small SUV and living off mostly gas station food, it was all worth it. The country was absolutely stunning and I certainly hope to spend more time there again.
If there were a spectrum of the state of matter, icebergs would be about halfway between sky and stone. With a lot of the structure and scale of rock with the ephemeralness of water. These absolutely stunning images come from Nuremberg-based photographer Jan Erik Waider.
