A remarkable moment, filled with blossoming elements all over this icelandic landscape, from the midnight warm
clouds to the endless stream of water and resilient vegetation.

This image was made right after I arrived to the Seljalandfoss parking space, during the June 2016 trip. The clouds were warming up before midnight, and I got the usual impulse of going straight to the waterfall base and shoot from there. All of a sudden this purplish red cloud starts coming right from behind the waterfall and so I instinctively decided I had to capture it, trying a new visual approach for this iconic spot. Using a vibrant plant in the foreground, the river stream as guiding line and mirroring the cloud in the water, this is the final result.
