Haifoss..

I posted some pictures from a previous visit to Haifoss (pronounced How-a-foss) at the end of last year.  This waterfall is so high, the gorge so deep, it would have been meaningless for me to put a human being in the picture to give a sense of scale as they’d appear as a meer speck and would be difficult to find.  You can see the solution I came up with for my last post below.. I hope you enjoy these latest pictures of this magnificent waterfall.. oh and by the way, these pictures were taken between 11pm and midnight. :-)

    Stunning light, marvellous composition….and the last one did make me smile!

    • Thank you Sue, I love the midnight sun! The light is so soft and just at the right end of the colour spectrum, nver tipping over into the blue. The sunset runs into sunrise, giving we photographers a lot of scope but at the same time, a lot of work. I never want to sleep! :-)

  7. Beautiful shots and a brilliant idea for giving us perspective!

    • Thank you Tina! I love this waterfall. It’s not easy to get to so it’s not on most people’s itineraries but for me, it is one of Iceland’s real treasures.

  8. Gorgeous pictures, Adrian! How I miss the light summer nights up North..

    June 28, 2015 at 5:03 pm

    • Thank you Camilla! The light is quite a novelty for me, not used to having the opportunity to take pictures for so many hours in a day!

      June 28, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    • Thank you for visiting. I’m glad you enjoy the pictures. :-) xxx

  14. I really like the otherworldly feel to your first photograph – and as you say, great light!

    July 2, 2015 at 10:35 am

    • Thank you Noeline. It felt pretty otherworldly being there. It was very cold, the wind was blowing hard and I was dressed for a summer’s day, not realising just how high these falls are. I set up, shivered, and left quite quickly but it was hard to drag myself away despite the cold. :-)

      July 2, 2015 at 9:22 pm

  15. Gorgeous photos. I love how the light changes from the diffused and shining plateau to the dark gorge. And the last photo is really fun.

    July 2, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    • Thank you Otto! I enjoyed putting the last photo together.. I thought it a useful way to get across the sheer height and depth of this gorge and wonderful waterfall! :-)

      July 2, 2015 at 9:19 pm

  16. What a great way to spend a night ~ the scale of these waterfalls are incredible. I can only imagine the long-lasting magic of those night skies and lighting, a photographer’s dream :-)

    • They really are Randall, thank you. Iceland being where it is, stuck out there in the middle of the North Atlantic and the only landfall for many miles, the island experiences some pretty heavy weather so one doesn’t always get the opportunity to take advantage of the light, but when cloud is light, it really is a magical place to be.

      July 3, 2015 at 11:37 am

  17. The scale is extraordinary, but the time of night is even more fantastic (to me). Amazing.

    July 9, 2015 at 8:44 pm

    • It was pretty strange to me too Elena, taking pictures like that at midnight. :-)

      July 10, 2015 at 3:44 pm

  18. How awesome must be to travel to those places and take wonderful photographs. I appreciate those that make it.

    • Thank you very much, it has been a pleasure to be able to travel to Iceland.

      August 26, 2015 at 6:55 am

  19. Beautiful work and the scale is most impressive!
