29.08.2009 Iceland‧§ Day 5 § Waterfalls

Thanked god the weather was not bad, no rain at least. Our first stop was Godafoss. It was so windy along Godafoss that I felt that I was standing under typhoon signal 3 or even signal 8! (Not 100% sure, as I always stayed at home once the typhoon signal has gone up to 3) It was so hard to stand still and my scarf and hat were almost blew off from me towards the waterfall! What's more, although there was no rain, the wind was so strong that it brought the plenty of water droplets to us! It was not much difference from light showers! Ohhh it had not finished yet - the coldness and the strong windy had affected the DSLR, or the batteries - it could not be switched on for long, only for a few seconds everytime, LOW BATTERY it said. But then my Canon SLR was working fine... I guess it was because DSLR required a much larger amount of electricity than SLR to operate. Therefore, taking photos became a difficult task and tripod was completely useless (You had to try your very best to stand still and hold the camera still, you had to be fast to take A shot and then switch off immediately, you had to minimise the amount of water droplets getting onto the filter and wipe the filter almost everytime before you take A shot, and you finally realised the cloth was so wet that it almost made no effect on wiping). 拍攝器材:Canon 300V + Tarmon A09 + Fuji Superior 200 That was my first time for taking photos of waterfalls. I thought the exposure had to be long so that the water would look smooth - but now I think it was probably too long - the speed of water was very fast, at least faster than any normal stream... I should have taken that into account... The next stop was Aldeyjarfoss, our tour guide said it was the most beautiful waterfall, my sister and I agreed, too. At least by far it is the most beautiful waterfall I have seen. The road to Aldeyjarfoss was exciting, there were quite a few UPs and DOWNs. In some areas, I even could not see the road, haha. There was quite a bit of walk to the waterfall, a bit rough. Aldeyjarfoss The last waterfall we were going to visit was Hrafnabjargafoss. Another beautiful waterfall which we could walk from the car park very easily.

We had stop at a church on our way to Laufás, hoping to get in to have a look. Unluckily it was closed. Laufás The church in Laufás Our tour guide was very friendly, we were chatting from time to time throughout our journey. At last, he was very kind that he drove us to his house which was at the top of a hill in Akureyri. From there, we had a fantastic view of the city, like the peak in Hong Kong. He had also gave us a brief tour guide of Akureyri. Thank you very much. 拍攝器材:Contax T2 + Fuji Superior 200
