A different Seljalandsfoss in winter
Lens: Voigtlander 15mm Camera: Leica SL ISO: 50 Shutter Speed: 1s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: The Madshutter, 09-06-2018, 04:12 AM

Seljalandsfoss is one of the most famous and photographed waterfalls in Iceland, most known for being photographed from behind the water. Since I like to go to Iceland in winter, both for my Workshops and for my personal work, that is never possible: the access to the waterfall's back is closed due to the snow. This, however, opens up new creative possibilities to portray this amazing waterfall surrounded by icicles and looking like it's digging in the snow. Black & white, for me, was the obvious choice for this.

Leica SL, Voigtlander 15mm and filters Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra.

Thank you for viewing, best regards

pretty. I like the difference vs. the usual summer take. Does it ever freeze over / stop flowing?

Thank you very much, glad you liked it! I am not sure it does completely freezes over or not, perhaps it's possible on an extremely rigid winter (?)
