    It´s been 3 years since last time we went to Iceland, and we´ve learned about and found places we missed last time, so now i´m back from a week on my favorite country :)

    How did you get the windscreen so clean??? I've never even considered taking a picture through a car window, because they are always sooo dirty... And where is that Waterfall? I'm currently still in Iceland. Maybe I can make it.

    I just use the windscreenvipers and as fast lens as possible, the 20mm F1.7 mostly to get any dirt to dissapear in the DOF.
    I´m not sure what waterfall youre thinking about, but we went up to the northwest peak, then road F208 down to the southcoast, you need a 4x4 to use that road.

    Sorry, I was talking about the hidden one. Won't have a 4x4, but will put it on a list for future visits (probably in 2 years or so)

    Edit: Searched for the hidden one, and found it. Right next to Seljalandsfoss and I didn't know it was there...

    It´s getting more and more expensive there so I would recomend sooner :)
    3 years agoe it was alittel cheapser with food and gas than in Sweden, now it´s a little bit more expansive I think.
