There’s a Storm Coming In

In Iceland the weather can change very quickly and can go from beautiful sunshine to a rainstorm and back again in a matter of minutes. There is a saying in Iceland, ‘If you don’t like the weather, just wait five minutes!’ and I feel I fully understand that now.

There’s a Storm Coming In – 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.
