Another Iceland post I’m afraid! This is one of my all time favourite images of Udrafoss, Iceland. Partly because it was such a lucky find … the landlord at my B&B gave me directions to the old Coast Road back to Keflavik on my final day in Iceland, instead of going back by route 1. The weather was ferocious as it had been all week and the drive was essentially a white knuckle ride, the road was raised and on either side were fields, just as in most countries except here they were fields of razor sharp lava which would cut the car to little steely ribbons if I ended up in there. Not very likely I hear you thinking except for the fact that the winds were blowing gale force and the road had the North Atlantic to one side and Mountains to t he other so the wind was gravity fed straight in to the Sea and the car was literally being thrown all over the place. The safest course was to aim the car along the white lines down the middle of the road, which wasn’t a problem because there was no-one else out there. Anyway, soon after I left route 1 to follow the Coast Road it turned into nothing more than a dirt track and there was a hand written sign pointing to Udrafoss which I almost missed and had to turn around and go back, of course I almost didn’t bother but I am mighty glad that I did. With this image I wanted a treatment which would showcase the ferocity of the weather and I think that I am there with this image, I have given it a 16:9 cinematic crop to add to that drama!
