Once I returned from Greenland, the adventure in Iceland started in earnest. All the participants got here ok, so for the last couple of days we’ve been driving long days to photograph as much as we could of the southern part of Iceland. It’s been a couple of very long days, getting back at the hotel late into the night (although it’s still daylight so you can’t call it night!). But having looked through some of the images that everybody has been making it looks like it was worth it.
We’ve also had our share of dramatic weather, with anything from spectacular clouds to very strong winds and pouring rain, but that’s just Iceland. If you don’t like the weather you just have to wait for 5 minutes and you’ll get something different.
As for the shot above, one of my main goals for this trip was to play a bit more with unusual angles and uses of the 24mm tilt-shift so I’ve tried to use it in most places we photographed. This particular waterfall is called Skógafoss and it’s one of the biggest in Iceland with a drop of over 60m. It was not an easy one to photograph as the wind was very gusty, constantly throwing water towards us and making us come up with all sorts of innovative ways of keeping the front of the lenses dry.
