It was a dark and rainy day in Vik.  The weather along with the black sand beaches and white waves washing ashore lent itself toward black and white.  I was drying the mist off my lens between exposures.   SETTINGS 0.6 sec at F22 ISO 64 16-35mm Nikon Lens Process in Lightroom then Nik SilverEfex Pro

Gullfoss Iceland.  The clouds were passing overhead with mixed lighting.  After shooting the front of the falls with a bit of a rainbow we hiked up the side and captured this view where the mist was backlit.  I decided not to blur the water and get the texture.
