Training Dragons in Iceland

I went to see How To Train Your Dragon 2 yesterday, with one of my girls. Not only had I forgotten that Jonsí had written a song for the soundtrack – Where No One Goes – but I was struck by how much Icelandic imagery featured throughout the film. No doubt influenced by writer/director Dean DeBlois, who had worked with Jonsí on Heima and Go Quiet, the new dragon lair features geometric basalt columns, dark systems of caves, iceberg festooned lagoons and tumbling waterfalls. Remind you of anywhere?
