Waterfall of the Gods

By JamesAppleton  
Godafoss - the waterfall of the Gods - North East Iceland. Away from the usual dramatic and fiery colours of sunset, here the best shot was found in muted twilight, the soft lighting from the sky allowing the gorgeous turquoise blue water to really shine. I'd spotted the moss-covered boulder from the other side, and it was simply a case of choosing a nice free flowing pattern in the foreground pebbles and smaller rocks, which didn't take too long. ND .6 Grad held the sky in check, and 10 seconds allowed for everything else. An excellent location, and one of Iceland's many stunning waterfalls...

Stunning image, beautiful & creative. Been wanting to visit Iceland for a long time and this makes me want to go all the more. I've just been checking out your PF too and it has to be one of the most underrated on the site and deserves MUCH more attention.

My award is both for this stunning shot and the rest of your excellent portfolio

Wow - thanks! Den, GO! It's mindblowing. If you want any tips at all, just give me a shout - I've spent the past four summers out there, and have covered about 90% of the place.
