Field of View

Someone once told me that that Icelanders say, ‘You see the land’ in Iceland because there aren’t all that many trees, and so you can always see the landscapes wherever you are.

Field of View – Instrumental Ambient Music Video, featuring the beautiful landscapes of Iceland.

Written, performed & produced by Stephen Caulfield. Taken from the album, To the Lighthouse. Available here:

Video directed and edited by Stephen Caulfield. All footage filmed on my phone in the beautiful country of Iceland. I hope you enjoy the Icelandic scenery and nature. 

I found the Icelandic landscape to be particularly inspiring when making the music for To the Lighthouse. In the specific case of this song – the beautiful horizon-to-horizon vistas of the countryside and scenery.
