Thank you all very much! I'm thrilled this made it to 2nd, as it has long been a favorite from my Iceland trip. The towering falls seem unbelievably huge, and the lone person at the bottom was just perfect for showing some scale!

Thank you all very much! I was very fortunate to catch the lone figure standing still for a brief moment - he moved on a few seconds later, and then a small crowd arrived shortly after.

The sheer hight of this waterfall is amazing.
But the lone man makes the gold win.
Many congratulations Chris.

Chris, this is a perfect lesson on how to make the best of imperfect shooting conditions (evident in your B&W of Skogafoss). You've shown Massive in a compelling way, so deserving of your win -- congratulations! And yes, I want to go back, too.

Thanks so much! I was lucky to have just the lone figure - and that they stood still for a lengthened exposure!
