Great shot!

Behind The Lens

Location
Kavernufoss, Iceland
Time
Shot at Sunset
Lighting
I think has to be one of my favourite locations I've shot, for a couple of reasons, 1. there's hardly anyone there as they all go to the much bigger waterfall nearby. 2. It's stunning and a lot more picturesque than the bigger waterfall nearby. 3. Like Seljalandsfoss (but in my view a lot nicer) you can actually get behind the falls here and shoot outward along the valley towards the sea. But my god does this place make you work to get an image!!. The water spray in the cave here was just non stop, tried allsorts but to no avail, you are constantly cleaning your lens every few seconds only for it to be completely soaked again, and again.... and again. I lost count of the amount of shots I binned on the day, and also once at home there's absolutely loads completely ruined by water spots, I was convinced I'd managed a couple of water free images so it was just a case of trawling the files and (thankfully) finding some, I think I've finally come away with 3 water free compositions from literally 100's of binned shots, not a place you can turn up to for 20 minutes and expect to get something!! We hadn't intended to shoot sunset here but the amount of time taken trying to get a shot here meant we wouldn't have time to get anywhere else so we decided to stay here and so glad we did as the light was just phenomenal down the valley lighting up the jagged rocks of the cavern walls and the waterfalls beyond, absolutely beautiful, but an absolute ordeal to shoot, But if you put the time in.... I didn't notice until reviewing the files on the camera but from this angle where the land comes together creating the area of sky looks just like a face / head
Equipment
Nikon D810, Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8, NiSi S5 150mm filter system, fotopro tripod
Inspiration
The sheer beauty of the location, also I waited till sunset to get the light illuminating the valley and rocks
Editing
5 images blended with luminosity masking, contrast adjustments
In my camera bag
2 camera bodies, Nikon D750 / Nikon D810. Nikon 14-24 F/2.8, Nikon 24-120 F/4, Nikon 70-200 f/4, NiSi v5 filter system, NiSi S5 filter system
Feedback
Be patient, you will get soaked as will your camera gear, you just have to keep going again, and again, and again until you get your shot, don't expect to just turn up and nail it in 10 minutes, it won't happen.
