Monochrome Awards 2019


Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EOS EF24-70mm f/2.8L, Cokin ND filters.

Foldafoss lies close to the Oxi pass on the mid eastern coast of Iceland. Although difficult to reach in bad weather it is relatively safe to travel there in mid-summer. The best shots are to be had close to the main part of the falls. The challenge is reaching there without either you or your equipment fall down a seriously steep ravine.

For this shot I tried to balance the tripod on a couple of large boulders setting up my filters to gain enough of a long exposure to capture the beauty of the falls.

The challenge as in so many waterfall captures is to achieve a long-exposure that is not ruined by unseen water spray on either the lens or the filters.
