Iceland has some of the most stunning waterfalls. During my visits, I managed to capture many of them.
As great as the Icelandic colors are in summer, sometimes nothing beats a good old black and white print. This is the reason why I spent lots of time working on the right black and white edit. Creating stark contrasts while retaining the delicate shades of grey is no easy task.
I hope you love the results as much as I do:
If you have been to Iceland, you will know that Skogafoss is one of the major tourist attractions in Iceland. There are always people around. For the photo above, I wanted to have only one person (to give a perspective of how impressive these falls are). I guess one of the "secrets" of good photos is it to wait quite a long time if necessary...
One more of this fantastic waterfall, this time a vertical format photo:

Skogafoss is one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland with a width of 25 meters (82 feet) and a drop of 60 meters (200 feet).
Seljalandsfoss is unique, it really is! Why? Because you can walk behind the waterfall. Please be prepared to get wet, always a good idea to wear water-resistant clothing, especially if it's cold and chilly.
Seljalandsfoss again, another perspective on this wonderful waterfall:
Godafoss is one of the waterfalls in Northern Iceland, while both Skokafoss and Seljalandsfoss are located in the South.
One can approach Dettifoss from two different directions. On a wide, well-maintained road that leads to a large parking lot or on a small track littered with large potholes, followed by a footpath. We decided on the second option and were rewarded with a magnificent view:
On this side, it is possible to walk directly to the edge of the waterfall. Due to the spray, the rocks are slippery, so please be careful! I definitely was, but my wife still got the crisis when she saw me walking around with my camera. All for a great picture, darling!
I hope you enjoyed the black and white waterfall pictures. Please leave me... Wait! What? Some of the most famous falls are missing! What about Gullfoss? Or Svartifoss, the one with the black lava rocks? Hahaha, don't worry, I captured them all. There will be a sequel of this post, promised!
Until then you can guess which of the waterfalls we treated today this one is:
