About Carving Through Time
Fagrifoss is a waterfall situated in Southeast Iceland near the Lakagígar region. Lakagígar is difficult to get to. It requires you to navigate a long 4×4 track.
In 1783, a volcanic fissure, called Laki, erupted violently. 120,000,000 long tons of sulfur dioxide ended up in the atmosphere, and estimates tell us that tens of thousands of people passed away in mainland Europe due to this disaster.
Nowadays, the area around Lakagígar looks like a green carpet. A green carpet with deep canyons and wild rivers carving through it. It is an out of the ordinary landscape. Something I have never seen before.
I came across this thundering waterfall, and although I had not planned photographing it, I immediately altered my planning for the day. This view was just out of this world. This river has been carving through this landscape for a long time. I struggled to find a striking viewpoint. But after several attempts, I managed to locate a spot that allowed me to capture this panoramic composition. The high-contract, dark clouds were the final touch to a dramatic image. It’s not exactly a peaceful sight. But it sure is an impressive one. When enlarged on an acrylic face mount, it definitely raises a lot of heads!
