Svartifoss is a waterfall in Skaftafell in Vatnajökull National Park in Iceland. Svartifoss means “Black Falls”. From the main road it takes around 1 hour walk to get there (one way). Surrounding Park is worth seeing and the walk is very interesting. On the way you will see another great waterfall and brook coming directly from Svartifoss. While I got there, of course there were many toursists at the location. Waterfall makes a huge impression couse of the bazalt rocks sorrounding it. These rocks were inspiration to build Hallgrímskirkja in Reykjavik. It was extremely hard to take a shot on the tripod (all the vibrations from the ground creates blurry pictures). Waiting for better moment was impossible. So I decided to hide somewhere between the rocks with stable ground and take a clear shot between walking toursists. I used the Tokina 11-20 mm f/2.8 wide angle lens with HOYA PROND 1000 filter to “play with time” and pause the waterfall. Thanks to “Tokina Polska” and “NEXT77” who supplied me with this gear. This is the result.  For higher resolution and more Playing with time photographs visit the gallery

Additionally I am attaching below setup preview of taking that photograph. “The making of” picture and video was taken with mobile phone.
