Godafoss was one if not the most challenging locations I’ve had the pleasure of trying to photograph. We drove a good 8 hours across Iceland to reach here in fierce snow blizzards, so strong we could see only a couple of feet ahead of us on the roads. Even though we could hardly see on the drive here there was an overwhelming thought of the stark beauty of the landscape around us.. even though we could not see the landscape!
Photographing Godafoss was even more difficult though, as it was immensely stunning in beauty to witness and stand in awe viewing the huge gushing and partly frozen waterfall in temperatures of close to minus 20. But proved extremely tricky to photograph as there was such a thick blanket of white snow, contrasting with the thick white sky and the equally neutral colour of the water.
On reflection it would of no doubt made for a better photograph outside of winter with no snow.. but the struggle to get here in these conditions and utter awe of this waterfall under those conditions just made it epic 🙂
