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. :)
