Falls of the Gods by marianne-lim Falls of the Gods by marianne-lim
Godafoss
Iceland

After completely doing these falls injustice last year, we revisited the site and we got perfect conditions. The wind was blowing away from us this time, which makes it so much more pleasant!!

This shot taken in the middle of an overcast day, with just a hint of blue in the horizon. An ND500 helped with this long exposure.

This is a very visually pleasing piece of work indeed, almost abstract minimalist is appearance. Initially it look a simple shot, but nothing simple I appreciate occurred in its capture. The foreground rock, moss covered acts as an anchor drawing you into the frame over the water to the falls beyond. The rushing water looks amazing and suggest great power and strength, the ominous clouds with the hint of blue add the final component to this very compelling and wonderful shot. Well done you. Simon
