Dynjandi Rock

Dynjandi Rock

Dynjandi waterfall

The Dynjandi waterfall in the Westfjords is the mother of all Icelandic waterfalls. There is every type of waterfall here. The strong flutes, the power walls, the delicate, flowing water cascades through green moss.  The main attraction is the huge cascade at the top. It is an uphill hike of 15-20 minutes to get to the huge cascade. From here there are great views down the fjords.

Camera Challenge

Dynjandi is easily the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland, but very challenging to photograph. The major challenge here is that your lens is going to distort the shape of the big one. To get up to its level you have to be stood under it and looking up the mountain. I have seen some reasonable attempts from the side, but then that doesn’t really show the grandeur. My solution was to ignore the bigger picture and take a straight forward slice from the middle of the cascade.

 

Camping

I usually camp here because there is a ice campsite with basic facilities right at the base of the complex.  Sleeping to the gentle roar of a waterfall is a wonderful experience.

For Iceland based photographers, photographing the Milky Way is generally something we do while we are waiting for the Northern Lights to appear.

This Northern lights photograph teaches me to be humble at this time in my life. It represents the place I am at in the universe, and maybe you too?
