A sight to Behold by alexandre-deschaumes A sight to Behold by alexandre-deschaumes
This is the first extract from our Iceland Workshop this month .. A mesmerizing Adventure through another world ...

We were 7 people, the mission is accomplished, all the 'students' have really good shots during our experimentations :D

This is SkogaFoss Waterfall, probably my favorite .. it holds elegance and power at the same time ..

reaching this point is not easy , to capture this , I am lied on the ash&water ground, a very hard wind and water is coming from everywhere .. It's overwhelming .
It's HELL for the camera , no possible focus point, hiding the camera .. keeping it dry is impossible, water is everywhere..
High ISO , 1/2500 seconds to freeze anything around ..
black & white , red filter & high contrasts .

the model is Sarah . who was also with in the Patagonia Adventure => [link]

We plan to do a next Iceland workshop adventure in 2012, September .. you can already email me if you feel interested to Join.

now I need to rest .. I'm very tired .. and so much pictures to sort and edit .

better quality on my website : [link]

Nice perspective, but you had to earn it! I would love to take the camera closer to the base of Skogafoss using waterproof protection. Hard to keep the lens dry though, especially with a wide angle. Another inspiring shot. :)

I always think your pictures can't get more epic and then suddenly I see something like this or your most current ID. You always leave me flabbergasted. Still really looking forward to your Olympic imagery; I'm also planning a new trip to the US for next year, also Olympic again. probably my favorite place on earth thus I am really keen to see yours. Yeah, I know I'm starting to get on your nerves about that. :D

You must have had at least time to get some picture? Did you by any chance visit La Push (the most famous beach there I guess)? :D

no ! or.. I don't know . I was close to "ruby beach" and "2nd or 3rd beach " I think

NicolasAlexanderOtto Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2011
2nd Beach yeah, I was there too. Pretty awesome, to bad the light sucked. But either way you have to edit at least some Olympic shots. Btw. did you write somewhere on the Web where exactly you were in the states? Only read some names of states on FB some time back. ;)

Awesome. Love the black and white look. Adds to the 'still' feel, which conflicts nicely with the subject matter. Waterfalls tend to indicate motion. Very cool!
