Marianne and the Blue Cauldron by Dee-T Marianne and the Blue Cauldron by Dee-T
Aldeyjarfoss
Iceland

We made the 40km dirt road trip from Godafoss to Aldeyjarfoss thinking that we had passed it at some point as the landscape was so barren. In the middle of this wasteland, the blue waters of Aldeyjarfoss roared over the edge of basalt columns. This was a remarkable location and if you can spare 2 hours of driving, I couldn't recommend a visit here enough! Marianne is located at the bottom of the image for scale. Chromatic aberration was a slight problem for the 7D and 10-20 for the very long exposures but I still like the result.

Absolutely beautiful! I like that Marianne is visible in the photo-- the colour she was wearing even provides a nice contrast.

it's a great time to go with the icelandic economy picking up the pieces - a win for their economy and relatively unexpensive travel once you get there :)
