Behold Skógafoss

By | 2015-06-26T04:17:00+00:00 Jun 26th, 2015|

We’re about five days into our Iceland Ring Road extravaganza and finally found a comfy service station with free wifi! That basically means that we’re on a mad dash to import/organize/edit photos taken around this beautiful country since arriving and catch up on the disgusting state of my inbox.

The first photo that I want to share is of the famous Skógafoss. It was one of our stops and it did not disappoint. We were fortunate enough to have some color in the sky as the sun rose. Unfortunately, it did not last very long but we made the time that we had count.

This is a six image pano stitched with Adobe Lightroom 6. I used my Sony a7II and the freaking unreal Zeiss Batis 25mm f/2 prime lens. Seriously, this lens has to be made out of crushed unicorn bones. It is one of the best lenses for landscape photographers hands down.

      Yeah, we just returned to the south yesterday and will give Skogafoss and Vik a second shot. It’s raining right now but the clouds look crazy! All good, though. This isn’t my last trip to this amazing country. :)

        If you have time and you have good weather try to do the walk along the waterfalls to Thorsmörk, you’ll see some amazing views and falls, beware you’ll have to cross some snow and the new lavafield

          We’re pretty tight on time for this trip but I’m already planning to return in February or March and will definitely bookmark your suggestion. Thanks for that!
