Seljalandsfoss (1567)

One of the most photographed waterfalls in Iceland. The special thing is that you can go into a cave behind the waterfall and take pictures in the evening hours through the waterfall to the setting sun. I was still under a gray cloud cover after my visits to the volcano, so I had to come up with something else as a subject.

White veils of water against a white sky just don’t work. But this crop in the opposite direction expresses so much of the dynamics of the waterfall. The water crashes onto a stone slab and splashes away to the sides. To the left and right of the main stream, weak streams plunge into the depths. In the photo they can be seen as translucent curtains to the left and right of the main fall. A thoroughly interesting motif in black and white — and certainly a rare view.
