Landscape Photography in Iceland | Capturing Long Exposure Waterfalls and Churches




In this landscape photography vlog, I drive out of VIk and stumble across a lovely waterfall that I explore, capturing a long exposure using a polariser and a 6 stop ND Lee Filter. I then discover a larger cascading waterfall where I fly the drone and capture another long exposure.

I then take you through what Ive been using for a vehicle and accommodation while staying visiting Iceland. I talk about the motorhome setup and the campsites Ive been staying out.

Finally I go for a quick drive to Grindavik to capture a moody image of a classic Icelandic church.

  1. That 3rd photograph is absolutely stunning Andrew. Norway is a tremendous contrast to the rugged Australia bush-scape you often shoot, and yet, those images are as visually powerful to those you have recently created in the UK and now Norway. Keep that portfolio growing and enjoy what life offers. Greg.

  2. Andrew, the comments below say it all. You have hit the ball out of the park again. A wonderful combination of narrative, video, photos and soothing music. I have a suggestion for a visit in New Zealand – check out the Forgotten World Highway out of New Plymouth. It is a spectacular location with photo ops at every turn.

  3. Great post Andrew and love the bed. Some nice long exposure shot with the running water. Wondering when I'm going see you on Burns Beach – no place like home. Thanks for posting

  4. That is absolutely true Andrew because this background information you provide would definitely help viewers who haven't been to that location or area before and thereby allowing people like us to be better orientated.

  5. That drone shot of the water at 4 minutes overwhelmed me a bit,and i got teary-eyed.It's so immensely beautiful and it just feels like that water had been rushing for 10,000 years.Iceland is paradise.

  6. New to this, and loved your vid, question is are you on manual mode or maybe aperture priority ..?? Is the 1sec exposure found after you put the filters on.?? Sorry if this sounds a dumb question.

  7. I'm so happy to have found your channel. You work is beautiful and videos are getting better and better probably due to the drone footage. Keep it up – cant wait for the next one 🙂

  8. Love the video as always. Beautiful images. That little camper is so cool. It reminds me of my little teardrop camper which is towed when I go away. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.

  9. Love how the clouds envelope the mountains! The pictures are so inspiring and how cool is that to video yourself driving in the campervan – I want one! Great idea about the velcro, I'll tuck that thought away for the future 🙂

  10. Going to Iceland was a trip of a lifetime for (photographer) me, my son (also a photographer) and daughter in law (amateur photographer)and we all got great images of many waterfalls and glaciers.

  11. Don't mind me asking but me and my friend was talking about visiting Iceland but I haven't gone as far as to plan for it yet but my question is roughly how did a trip like this cost altogether??

  12. So liked the opening Drone footage Andrew ,you handle that awesomely as always
    had the same thoughts as Tobias about the short nights upsetting your body's routine
    they sure pack a fair amount into those Vans, how did it drive and handle ?? , bet you missed your ute 🙂
    cheers , another fine one for sure

  13. Hi Andrew, Did the camper company go over the van with a fine tooth comb looking for damage when you handed it back? I did read somewhere that hire companies in Iceland are a bit hot on the added extras for cover?
