Canyon Dweller - Landscapes - Dee Potter Photography

DEE POTTER DEE POTTER

Just when I thought I couldn't get any more soaked than photographing the great Seljalandsfoss, a quick kilometre venture along the base of the same high cliffs brought us to a narrow river running from out of the cliffside through a very narrow slit in the rock-face, and once squeezed inside, the roar and mist of Gljufrabui waterfall, or Gljúfrabúifoss, filled this enormous canyon behind the cliff wall. At 40 meters high, Gljufrabui isn't the tallest of Icelands 10,000 waterfalls, but it is certainly one of the most impressive, if only for itself unique location pouring inside of a mountain. In fact, the name, Gljufrabui, (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈkljuvraˌfɔsː]),translated into English means "canyon dweller" or "dweller of the gorge". The biggest challenge of photographing this gorge, was keeping the camera lens clean and dry for just long enough to capture the shots. 3 seconds is a long time in a shower!
