Behind The Lens

Location
its a waterfall next to Seljalandsfoss / waterfall on the south coast. Gljúfrabúi is the name of the waterfall, its situated in a narrow canyon and you need to walk through the river to get to the bottom on the canyon where the waterfall is.
Time
It was taken around noon on a bright and sunny day.
Lighting
The canyon its self is rather dark and on a sunny and bright day you can get a bright light on the top of the waterfall which can make the photoshot more difficult.
Equipment
Canon 5DM4, 16-35mm M3 and a tripod.
Inspiration
The waterfall is there and its a challenge to get the long exposure picture due to a spray coming from the waterfall. Its also challenging to take a picture of a waterfall where you are standing so close to it. The surrounding is great, narrow and green canyon.
Editing
I needed to work on the shadows areas on the lower part of the picture. When I took the picture I made sure that the sky was not burned out but because of that the lower part was very dark. Contrast, correct and few water drops cleaned.
In my camera bag
Canon 5DM4 and M3, 16-35mm f/2.8 M3 and M2, kase filters.
Feedback
Be patienced, bring cloth to wipe of the lens, find the driest spot in the canyon to set up your camera and be creative.
