Long exposure waterfalls

This photo was taken on a Winter tour to North Iceland. The journey was eventful with a minor fender bender on one of the Northern moors during a blizzard with very slippery roads. We managed to stay just 10 minutes drive from Goðafoss waterfall so it was easy to head out when the sky was interesting. Godafoss is an incredible Icelandic waterfall!! And certainly worth the trip up to the North. The exposure was controlled with my magic cloth to reduce the highights in the sky and enhance the details in the rocks. Because the land had snow, there is no need for a heavy cloth technique and I would suggest a 2:1 ratio.

The Magic Cloth Photography Gear

ND Filter: (not at night, only in daylight) I suggest round filters for damp weather or near waterfalls, beaches etc.

Heavy Tripod: Magic Cloth movements can cause vibrations. A sturdy tripod is necessary for top quality long exposure photography.

The one thing we agreed on was to leave our tents erect and stay another night at the falls.

This is a strange volcanic lake. It goes very deep in places and used to be the deepest lake in Iceland.
