Beautiful waterfall Skogafoss. You can walk right up to the falls or hike up a path beside the falls and view from half way up or at the top. Several waterfalls in the area. This is one of the main tourist falls in the area, however in May when this was taken, only a handful of people about.
A little tired today...thought I would just share a pic from our last workshop :)
Did you ever notice that colours that you see when you are taking pictures change in your mind when you think about the place say two or three months later? Add to the mix that your camera will alter those colours depending on your settings. Of course for shooter like myself who shoot RAW and settings in camera to be neutral with minimal contrast, cannot rely of the images for colour accuracy. Yes, you can take a colour checker shot as a reference but that takes the fun out of it.
I don't think that all of the above is necessary a bad thing. It gives me a little bit of creative freedom. I can (and my mind usually does) alter the scene to my liking and give my photographs MY perception or rather MY artistic interpretation of the scene. There is a place for accuracy in photographs but not always so.
This is a beautiful waterfall located about a half an hour south of Godafoss (Northern Iceland). This was a sunrise shot (composite). I was able to get the sunburst look by stopping down the lens to f13. Perhaps, could have been better at f16 but was running to just catch this before it was gone. Only got a shot in before the sun was too high.
This is another one of those "didn't get there early enough to think and plan the shot" deals. We got a little misdirected looking or these falls after shooting Godafoss earlier in the morning. Due to the fact that I was shooting directly into the sun (and my Nikkor 14-24 lens probably not clean enough), I have plenty of flare in this image. I could spend some time removing it, but I don't mind it as it is.
It's been a hectic month with no chance of photography or photography posts. Thought I leave an image for my followers :) This was taken on our last trip to Iceland in May. Around 3 am Iceland time. Cheers, and thanks for you patience :)
