Picture Story

On a month long trip to Iceland in winter I traveled the circumference of the island and many inland spots as well. The waterfalls at Hraunfossar run for at least 200 meters as they spill over a shelf. I decided rather than to simply photography the grandeur of the wide scene, to drill down and isolate a section of the falls. I put my 2x teleconverter to my 70-200mm lens to give me the reach I wanted. What I captured is an intimate image I call "the tree of life". To my eye, the waterfalls resembles a tree with it's extended branches. As we think of water as an essential element to living, the title seems to fit for me.
