When you chase the light sometimes you catch it, and other times it catches you. One evening we went to ?lafsv?k on the north coast of the Sn?fellsnes peninsula. But it was getting quite late, and we headed back. Traveling a rough, twisty mountain road through the volcanic region of Sn?fellsj?kull, we saw the sky begin to catch fire above us. The chill wind was blasting us, the clouds were like flame over the dark lava rocks, and I thought this would be a great location to film a fantastical story.
