Silver Streams

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 27 January 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.


This is a view from the east bank of Jökulsá á Fjöllum river in northern Iceland, near the Selfoss waterfall. On a different day we returned to the waterfall and due to the main fall being covered almost entirely by water spray, I decided to concentrate on some of the run off streams on the western side of the river.

Luckily, the wind was blowing away from the camera and kept the water spray away from my filters. I was fascinated by the various flows in the scene before my eyes. The smooth texture of the clouds, vertical streams running down the cliffs and horizontal flow of the river working in unison together.

I was very pleased with this photo. The conversion to monochrome worked very well and it is one of my favourite (if not the favourite) photos from the entire trip.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 30 seconds F/16.0 ISO 50 24 mm
