The icebound waterfall of Öxarárfoss on Thingvellir on a bright and cold day in March.

I didn't have any ND filter so I had to settle for a very short exposure time, but still it was juuuust enough to smooth the movement of the waterfall...

Great area to photograph! the composition is good but feels a little tight. nice mid length shutter speed and good exposure of the ice and water

Would "cool" be an appropriate comment for this?

Fantastic water sculptures, what a natural beautiful art piece to capture.

The dramatic ice and falling water achieve a fantasy quality setting your photo well above the croud. Among the best of show.

good exposure here. 6
came back to give a more detailed comment, I find the image a touch too blue, so a quick adjustment to slightly reduce the blue saturation preferred IMO.

Great title and great shot. Nice textures in icicles, snow and water falls. Nice use of a slightly blue tone to increase the feeling of cole.
