Dettifoss in north eastern Iceland. It's been photographed a lot, but seeing it up close...hearing it, feeling it, is a truly awesome and humbling experience.
I took a number of different compositions of this place...it's possibly the hardest location I've ever shot. First of all it was hailing and windy, then the amount of spray produced by these falls (the largest by volume of water in Europe) is incredible. The air feels like liquid, and when you're shooting, it means that every time the lens is uncovered, it gets covered in drops of water. So after every exposure, there was a couple of minutes cleaning the lens and making sure there were no smears or drops of water.
Oh, and doing all this whilst standing less than a meter away from the drop with the incredible noise and power of the water just dominating everything.
I shot some longer, wider exposures, but the fast shutter abstracts are my favorites better capture the immensity of the water, and how hypnotic it is. Standing there on the edge, staring at the water, you start to see shapes emerge and it feels almost as though it's pulling you towards it....
