This is awesome! I've been to this waterfall in the rain. It was hard to get to and even harder to shoot. Bravo! :)

The elusive Bruarfoss waterfall in Iceland. This place is not exactly easy to find—but I was not going to miss it. It is located in the very small town of Brekkuskogur on a main route from Thingnellir to Gullfoss… After searching for hours and finding the coordinates (64.264305, -20.515338), I was able to look on google satellite maps to pinpoint exactly where to turn, park and hike to the falls (message me if you want the details). I made one stop there in the morning to scout out the place and on my way back from my long day trip, I couldn’t pass up the sunset glow that was now breaking through the cloud cover.

This was a 26mm shot from the bridge—enough to fit in the nice swirling pool of water at the bottom and still capture some sky. I took a few 1 second exposures at f/16, ISO100 to make sure I caught a few swirls that I liked. In post, I used multiple luminosity masks to adjust tones and contrasts throughout. Had to avoid doing much to the water, as it is already incredibly blue in person. All in all, this is a shot we’ve all seen before, but I’m glad I captured it in these conditions.
