Iceland Waterfall

Now hows this for a sunrise spot? The epic and very frozen Godafoss Waterfall from an insanely cool spot to shoot it from as well. This morning was definitely one of the hardest conditions I've ever attempted to shoot in as this spot that I was precariously perched on was not only covered in snow and ice which made it hard to tell what was safe ground to stand on & what was snow or ice that if you stod on would be the end of you haha. As well as that I was directly in the firing line of the huge amounts of water spray which usually isn't a huge issue as you wipe, shoot & repeat. But because it was around -10 the spray would freeze as soon as it touched your camera & lens leaving a thick layer of Ice instantly. I would set up the shot, turn the camera around to face me & massage my lens with a cloth before spinning around and quickly shooting a few bursts off. This was a 6 shot panorama so you could imagine how hard this was haha but I think I managed to capture it pretty well considering what I was dealing with. And as you can see the light this morning was top notch.

This photo was the prize for a long night walk of 8 hours to reach the base of the Torres del Paine. After sunrise, a strong light appeared that I wanted to capture along with the movement of the water that provides dynamism.

"Cold winterday on fellside is a real arctic experience. Low running clouds surrounds the felltops and creates interesting colours to scenery when sunlight filters thru clouds. Hardpacked snow covers the spruces building a mysterious forms to the landcape".

"Every time I scratch apathy, I find powerlessness beneath it. Humans care, they just don't know what to do about it." - Author: Quinn Norton

Another visit to shoot the sunrise in one of the opposite ends of the Island, in the Eastern located Ponta de São Lourenço area. This area is normally fustigated with high winds making the job of capturing a good shot more intense. In this case I tried to make the most of one of the most privileged viewpoints of the Island, where one can witness striking and memorable light when the sun comes up.

In this beautiful dawn, I was walking along the lakeshore. On the beach of Lake Ontario, I found this tree branch lying there, the waves kept coming over under the golden sunlight. I decided to make a long exposure to make the water foggy. My Haida Red-diamond ND filter helped me make it happen, after 200 second long exposure, I got the water so smooth and the sky so dreamy. Thanks to Haida's high quality product!
