Selfoss is a waterfall on the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum in the north of Iceland. This is a composition that I chose from the west side of the river. I focused on one of the "side falls" further away from the main waterfall. The water level was very high and the resulting spray and run off streams prevented me from getting too close.

It was my intention to capture some of Iceland's superb waterfalls with the use of my 6 stop and 10 stop neutral density filters to create moody and dramatic scenes. Selfoss presented me with perfect conditions for what I had in mind. There are plenty of options for different compositions from both sides of the river. Spray is an issue though and wind direction needs to be considered when planning photos in this area.
