Seljalandsfoss Siren Sunset

    Seljalandsfoss – Iceland

    www.davidshieldphotography.com

    My one beautiful sunset during this trip was here at Seljalandsfoss; like so many of Iceland’s scenic wonders, it is a view that is very easy to reach. Capturing images of this view even in good weather can still be a challenge. This is one of three images of this waterfall that I will be adding to my website. The challenge shooting this image was attempting to prevent spray from the falls hitting the lens. Having a lens cloth available is very necessary. There are a few smaller waterfalls that cascade over the edge of the lush mossy green cliffs that extend from east to west. A campground is located at the west end, where I spent a short night between sunset and sunrise. The people of Iceland appear to do every single thing right, including the pristine campgrounds. So many of the campgrounds even though located in some unexpected off-road locations, feature showers and clean flush toilets…So impressive!
