Seljalandsfoss by RS-foto Seljalandsfoss by RS-foto
This is not the biggest nor the most powerfull waterfall in Iceland, but I think it's the most amazing of them all. From the parking lot it seems like a normal waterfall running down the side of a mountain, but when you get closer you notice there is a path leading from the side that let's you walk completely around the back of the waterfall in this huge cave-like formation! Only when you walk behind the waterfall can you truly feel how magnificent it is. It's not easy to take photos in the cave because the wind keeps throwing water in your face (and lens) almost all the time.
To put the waterfall in scale, there are four people in the photo, can you spot them all? =)

I Hope you like it!


#Taken with Samyang 14mm lens, I'll have to fix the EXIF later.. =/

the tall viewing of this photo is a reveal in itself as you scroll down it confused me as to how it was orientated with the curvature which in itself was an amazing way to view as if seeing it in a different setting entirely until i saw the entire piece i was suddenly captivated and surprised by its splendor not noticing the water as I scrolled thinking it as being a cloud in the horizon since the picture was tilted in the wrong way as it appeared at first until i saw the rest it could be an interesting way to reveal this work in digital form instead of boom thee it is.
A truly massive and impressive work of art to be seen as it is though some more clouds would set the stage for more dramatics but remove the previous reveal scenario. A fish eye lens may take it to another level but ruin the suppleness as it is other ways are your choice though the photographer is always the best critic in one self without the discretion of others guidance. Thank you for your efforts and hope you continue your work

Wow, that's beautiful.
Wish I could afford a trip to Iceland, right now, just because of this shot.
Fantastic capture. Love the angle, and that Sky is like my favorite color.

Thats one of the most interesting perspectives for a photo of the Seljalandfoss I've ever seen I have to say. Really linking it! You should have made some photos when the sunset kicked in, that would be awesome dude! (also + longer exposure could look sick here). Will try this out in the summer when im in Iceland again :D

Thanks very much! I also have a wide panorama taken from the middle of the cavern which I might upload some time later. Sunset would really have been interesting to shoot there but unfortunately our schedule was too tight =/

There are a lot of wide panorama pictures of that spot (which all look amazing most times) but your perspectiv is really interesting because I've never seen it this way =)

Also I had the same problem with time, it just sucks :D

Ah, I was there a month ago. Sadly it was dark and there wasn't much to be seen, but still fun struggling around the path in the dark and the snow!

Well looks like they are really hard to find in such small size.
Two are close to each other along the path in the middle of the pic but they are almost impossible to spot if you don't know what to look for. One is easier, in the bottom left part of the picture between the grass and cliff.
I hope this helps, let me know if you find them! =D
