Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This image was taken on the south coast of Iceland. Skógafoss was a magical and mystical place, and I wanted to capture the special majestic feeling that surrounded it.

There is a legend that is connected to this fascinating place: the first Viking settler who set foot in the area is said to have hidden treasure in a cave behind the waterfall. Later on the treasure was found, but the men could only recover the handle of the chest, the rest of the chest disappeared. The ring was used later as a handle on a church door, and now it can be viewed in one of the museums in Iceland.

During the shoot the weather was changing surprisingly quickly. One minute I had a very warm looking sun rays falling on top of the rock from the east (secondary image 2) and literally five minutes later a wild snow storm whipped up from out of nowhere (secondary image 3).

To give you some perspective on the scale of the waterfall I have included another image (secondary image 4 - this photograph won first place in a travel competition in Daily Telegraph). Often I have heard that this photograph reminds the viewer of a woman's shape, or they find it elegant, raw, powerful and erotic. Whatever they perceive, I feel I have achieved my aim - to capture the magical, extraordinary ambiance of the place.
