Waterfall of Certain Doom

    Newer Older

    This has become one of my favorite remote waterfalls in the world! Whenever I am taking photos of these places, I spend a lot of time there. I often imagine what it would be like to tumble over the edge… wondering various ways I could survive… if I’d get caught in a whirlpool underwater… or if I would just pop up like in the movies.

    If you are ever near Akureyri, I suggest you visit this spot… if you are feeling bold, clamber down the side of the waterfall like I did here to get this shot…

      A bit of fringing there, but certainly not enough to spoil the shot. Good one!

      A real return to form Trey . I felt some of your recent photos (although I like the rocks in Virgin Gorda) weren't up to your usual high standard they even appeared kinda lazy. Maybe you get jaded from time to time. This however is not like that and is stunning. This is the benchmark for HDR. It's fantastic.
      Is this the waterfall that appears in the start of Prometheus?
