Iceland has many hidden gems. This is a place that we thought was a hidden gem! Turns out, it’s not so hidden anymore. One of the friends I was travelling with went here years ago, and by that time you had to park in the middle of nowhere, walk through a field for 40 min, and arrive at this location. Well, now you arrive at a proper parking slot, paved walkways with fences, and a mass of people.
Here is just a quick shot from icy Iceland! It was already super dark and we flew around with our drones – which is actually a bit scary as you never know when you fly into another drone! Anyway, it was quite too dark for my little drone so I had to reduce the noise in the photo a lot, but the picture doesn’t need a lot of details which makes it still work. There was also a seal swimming around all the time, but of course, it didn’t show up when you needed it to complete your photo…
Iceland has tons of waterfalls – some larger, some smaller. Some of them are very touristic, and the ones that weren’t up until now seem to get there more and more – but this particular one isn’t! Over time, you will see a shot similar to this more and more – but I just love how the stones in the foreground create that natural frame for the waterfall!
You know what’s the problem with every good reflection? It requires calm water, which often means … flies! Will I fondly remember this place? Maybe. But I will definitely remember the fury for being hunted by 1000 little annoying flies!
To get this shot, I had to fly my drone into a canyon in Iceland. I actually just wanted to get a nice picture of the waterfall, but as I was approaching, a friend of mine noticed the three sheep! Initially, they were just scattered around, but as I came closer, they converged at the edge and just all looked towards the waterfall. I don’t know why and neither do I care – I do thank them though!
