Immersed with having so much to do, immersed in water, immersed in something in particular. Immersed ‘in the zone’.
Seljalandsfoss is one of the best known waterfalls in Iceland. The waterfall drops 60 m (197 ft) and is part of the Seljalands River that has its origin in the volcano glacier Eyjafjallajökull. You can walk behind it into a small cave. Of course that makes sense to do in an earthquake prone country, especially when it’s located near a volcano too. However, let’s put all those fears aside for now!
I often like to blur water to milkiness but my vision for this wasn’t that, it was to make the water look like curtains over the cave opening. What you can’t tell from the photo is the amount of spray coming in from the waterfall.
Before leaving for Iceland, I was totally immersed with so much to do! Absolutely flat out. The run up to Christmas, lots of activities with children, organising the completion of a big event for my PTA whilst I was away, as well as trying to plan for my 5 day trip to Iceland.
At the waterfall, I was totally immersed literally. Absolutely drenched. I had to keep wiping water off the lens and the camera.
I was also totally immersed mentally. Absolutely besotted. Trying to make this image to the point that I didn’t really know how long I was taking! I was immersed ‘in the zone’.
Again, this image has some symmetry, trying to find balance in my life from all the pulling priorities. Absorbing the mightiness of the waterfall.
At the end of the day my cameras were also immersed. Absolutely soaked. Immersed in a bag of rice overnight. Each was refreshed by the morning! And so was I.
