This is the Brúarfoss Waterfall in Iceland. It means “Bridge Waterfall” (Brúar = Bridge; Foss = Waterfall).
If you want to stay dry, there are only a very small handful of shots to get from the shaky bridge crossing the water, that vibrated with each person’s step; a difficult shot when the bridge is full of uncooperative people and you are trying to shoot exposures longer than a couple of seconds. If you don’t mind trudging through cold glacial-melt and dealing with very slippery rocks in a rough current, then there are great photographic prizes to be had down below, which is where I quickly moved to after getting the typical shot from above. From there, you begin to get intimate with the massive numbers of little waterfall rivulets with amazing designs, all working together to keep your eye back on the water’s flow. From down here, I used a combination of wide angle lenses to catch the size of the flow from some dramatic images, as well as my big 70-200 to pick apart many pieces of the waterfall as complete but smaller bits contributing to the overall scene. This was absolutely one of my favorite locations in Iceland and should I ever return, you can count on me returning here, away from the typical tourists.
