The Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25 metres (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow is normally visible on sunny days. According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall. The legend continues that locals found the chest years later, but were only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. The ring was allegedly given to the local church.
Here we have Headley Heath in Surrey looking over a little pond as the evening sun is setting. I wanted a very dreamy look so saturated all the colours and made the centre a little glowy.
This photo is taken at Rosehill in Carshalton looking across the crossing and shops. This was the first time I took my camera out in the rain to try and catch the reflections in the puddles. As my camera is not weatherproof I bought a little DSLR rainbag on eBay for about £10. Only problem is my 8mm fisheye I was using is so wide I can’t cover the lens with the bag otherwise the bag will be in the frame. This was ok when the rain eased up but when the rain was coming meant I got some rain drops on the glass, spoiling my pictures.
