Ok, yes it also looks painfully cold. Winter is just barely over and I'm not really looking for reminders or images of ice and snow. There is no denying, however, that the images and time lapses, captured in Henry Juh Wah Lee’s short film are breathtaking, especially if you can watch them from a warm, dry place. According to the filmmaker:

"Eye of the Storm is a winter saga in Iceland. In Iceland there are many kinds of storms. Ice, snow, rain, sand, ash, solar, magnetic, and more. Storms are agents of change. While often destructive and unpredictable, they also demonstrate the unyielding power of nature. They reveal nature's beauty and its hand in creating the landscapes we see today. Shot in Iceland between February and March, 2014, I was lucky enough to witness and film the power of an X-class solar flare and coronal mass ejection hitting our atmosphere. The resulting auroras were a sight hard to believe, even in person and seeing it with my very own eyes."
