OK, so it’s not exactly Star Wars, because even in the strange terrain of Iceland two suns do not shine. But it is definitely unlike any place on Earth. Photographer Joe Capra presents the wonder of Iceland in a stunning time-lapse video created over 17 sleepless days and nights. Blue ice moves across the water, surreal shades of purple play atop fields, and the whole spectrum of oranges, yellows, and reds appear in unexpected places.


As for the two suns, we’re only left with our one, lonely G2 star, but at the 51-second mark you can watch it move horizontally across the sky. After watching this video it wouldn’t be extreme to suggest Iceland to George Lucas as his next set location.
