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.
This basalt structure has withstood many thousands of years of Icelandic weather, although it recently had a concrete base manufactured to prevent erosion.

This was the worst weather I had seen at this beach. The terrific winds were blasting sand at the backs of our necks as we struggled with our cameras.
