Passing Through the Town

We stayed at this lovely hotel on our first visit to Iceland and many time since there too. I had great fun editing hours of time-lapse footage into a composite video that shows all the traffic passing the hotel during the night. I then had even more fun editing certain elements to highlight the drum machine rhythms in the music.
