Here’s a picture of Skogafoss in Iceland treated a little differently to my usual.  This picture was taken on a very dull, miserable morning to be honest and the day really didn’t hold any promise for a photograph of any sort, or so I thought.  I took some pictures anyway, despite the conditions, of course.  Processing the pictures in black and white however with a low key approach, there was a picture there after all.  There really is no such thing as bad weather..

  7. Great shot Adrian, bringing such a great mood to as you say a rather dull morning. A great lesson here, which I sometimes forget…there is always something beautiful to see in every type of weather. Cheers to a great week!

    • Thank you Randall. When you’re away for a limited time, you make the most of whatever weather you’re confronted with. The results can be surprising and it’s something easily forgotten when we get home. I wish you a great week too! :)

    • Thank you Bente! Much appreciated! :-)

  15. Yours is the greatest accomplishment… finding the drama and beauty in what is not seen readily, it’s the art in photography.

    • Thank you so much Shimon. Such a lovely comment!

      August 27, 2015 at 5:29 pm

  16. Opinions and preconceptions are so powerful aren’t they? But the urge to photograph. ..even stronger! What perfect balance, my eye keeps zooming back to the waterfall. This is simplicity itself. I love the brooding sky and the detail in the foreground.

    • Thank you so much Lynn. I’m so glad you enjoyed this photograph. I very nearly just didn’t bother to try and process this image, it seemed to hold such little promise, much like the day as I said and yet, reaction has been so positive. A lesson to be learned for sure. :-)

    It’s easy to take a good photo in good (or easy) light. It takes skill to do so in more everyday conditions… Love the low key processing you went with.

    • Thank you very much Johann, Much appreciated!

  18. i was here in June 2015, at a time when the sun was shining. Compared to your photograph mine don’t do justice to the location. My excuse is that I was in a tour group, and by the time we had walked down the side of the waterfall to the bottom, the bus was waiting so time for photography was very limite!

    • Thank you Adrian. This is the drawback with a lot of the Iceland tours, the clock is always ticking and the bus is waiting..

  19. WOW!

    • Thank you Edith!

  20. Black and white is certainly a different take (but I do remember some from older posts). But it makes Skogafoss stand out in a different way, doesn’t it! The photo is beautifully processed.
