    Skogafoss, here shown at sunrise, is one of the most majestic and impressive waterfalls I have ever seen and photographed. 8 seconds exposure with my Hasselblad X1D, my Hasselblad XCD 30mm and my Formatt-Hitech Firecrest Ultra filters.

    Simple and serene. Love it. That rock in the foreground just works perfectly.

    Very nice, Vieri. No tourists and no rain! Seems like the only times I've been there it's been raining really hard, but was still mobbed by tourists. Never been there at sunrise, though.

    I like the soft glow of color in the skies just above the falls - the contrast to the color of the water adds a nice emphasis to the falls.

    The clarity of the underwater rocks is great and I love that sky. Great image.

    Super cool Vieri! That 8 sec shutter speed looks really nice too.

    a beautiful comp., that larger rock in the foreground is perfectly placed. i love how the bluer hues of the water gives some contrast to the pinks and purples in the sky.
