Kirkjufellsfoss

The most photographed mountain and waterfall in Iceland, Kirkjufellsfoss was both the start and terminus of my excursion around the island. Understandably popular with its obvious beauty and compositional simplicity, I was barracked on the hillside by countless other tourists and their tripods. Rather than just be a slave to the same shot that everyone takes I also tried to make a small study of the water and surrounding areas. I rendered them in black and white wherever I felt that the colour added nothing of value to the shot (particularly under an overcast sky). There was a hint of the auroras in some of the images but nothing like the spectacular display I was treated to the following night. I hope you enjoy these images. More from my excursion will be posted soon.

Spectacular photos. The black and white shots really emphasize the water!
