Hraunfossar, Western Iceland
Hraunfossar waterfall near Husafell in west Iceland, is a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. The waterfalls pour into the Hvítá river, downstream from Gullfoss waterfall, from ledges of less porous rock in the lava. We were at Hraunfossar on the last day of the road trip on 18.09.2018, enroute to Reykjavik.
I used only my SONY α7RIII and SONY FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens, mounted on my Gitzo Mountaineer GT-1542 and FLM 32FP ballhead, for the still shots. I used NiSi CPL, NiSi GND .9 Soft and Nisi ND8 filters to capture these shots. No timelapse this time around. After getting some still shots, I proceeded to fly my dji Mavic Pro Platinum for some awesome aerial view of the waterfall. Here is a slideshow of some the images captured at Hraunfossar.
In my opinion, Hraunfossar is best shot in autumn for its colorfulness. It strikes as a contrast to the blueish water of the river. There is a big platform for visitors to photographs the "main waterfall" at Hraunfossar. I didn't go to the neighbouring Barnafoss since it was bit of a hassle to get to and I like the views of Hraunfossar much better.
