Seljalandsfoss waterval

Heel vroeg in de ochtend gingen we naar de waterval Seljalandsfoss in IJsland. Eigenlijk hadden we ook 's nachts kunnen gaan, want in deze tijd van het jaar (juni) is het vrijwel de hele nacht licht buiten.


Deze waterval is een van de bekendste watervallen van IJsland. 

En een van de vele, want wat hebben we er veel gezien gedurende ons verblijf.

Zo 's morgens vroeg is het er nog heel stil en waren we bijna alleen. 

Dat is overdag wel anders. Er stoppen er heel wat bussen met toeristen die een dagtripje vanuit Reykjavik maken.


Bij deze waterval moet je betalen voor het parkeren.  24 uur per dag.


Toen wij er waren (juni 2018) was de prijs 700 ISK. 


Donatie bus voor de landeigenaren.


Achter de waterval kijken

Het bijzondere aan deze waterval is dat je er achterlangs kunt lopen. Je wordt wel een beetje nat wanneer je zo dichtbij komt, maar het is de moeite wel waard!


Je moet wel goed uitkijken hier, want sommige stukken zijn best glibberig.


Het winkeltje was nog gesloten toen wij er waren.


Op het bankje kun je even rustig gaan zitten kijken naar de waterval.


Op het informatiebord staat uitleg over deze waterval. 

De IJslandse taal is mooi om te zien, maar voor mij niet te lezen.


Gelukkig stond het er ook in het Engels!


Mocht je denken ik ga hier overnachten, dan gaat dat niet door. 


De andere kant


Ook wanneer je met je rug naar de waterval staat is het landschap een plaatje om te zien!

Ik heb ook wat gefilmd en het resultaat daarvan kun je hier zien (en horen!) :

The garden: closer or closer to or closer to the closer...
#nature #poems   #poetry   #flowers   Anyone who knows me a little bit on Yoors knows that I hold poetry high in my esteem. I also love nature very much and have already been able to show you a taste of my garden (   ). But sometimes I also go a little closer to everything that is in my garden and sometimes I become a bit poetic.. Closer to things you can see them how they are, beautiful and sometimes fragile and sometimes miraculous. To the closer than words flow and with these pictures a poem about butterflies. But there is still room for more inspiration in the pictures: flowers, fairy benches, vines grapes and figs (no, not after Easter). You guys enjoy a little? Early Butterfly Blossom envelops the first crowns fresh in early spring gardens oriental signed off. In a pink kimono he butterflies into the spring as a Japanese cherry. © Rudi J.P. Lejaeghere Or still: Peacock Frivolously he flutters the sides on and off a swirling tumbler of color quietly butterflies its own way drunk from a flower after flour after flour how bright his passion shines in my peacock eye flares a rainbow wide the dance of the collector sings sky high his gloria. © Rudi J.P.

Cosplay Tips for Beginners
Although I am still definitely within the 'beginners' category, I have already learned some things the hard way in the meantime and by sharing them here I might be able to help the next beginners avoid having to face the same difficulties. Therefore, here are some cosplay tips listed: - Are you going to a convention in Cosplay?? Try taking pictures at the beginning of the convention. At the end of a day walking around in such a crowd, it may be possible that your cosplay doesn't look as radiant as it did at the beginning of the day. This can be about simple things, like a wig that starts to fall off or makeup that starts to run out a bit, but with some bad luck there might even be something broken on your Cosplay. Hiding it during photos certainly creates an additional difficulty. - Pay attention to comfort! This one is quite important and is also often overlooked. Before you go to a convention, wear cosplay for a longer period of time, walk around in it, sit down.. Feel if you can move and if something isn't poking, for example, because wearing the outfit that pricks your ribs can even lead to wounds and we certainly don't want that. Also, do not forget to pay attention to the shoes. The character you cosplayt wear might be high heels, but if you never wear them in your life, you don't suddenly go to a convention to walk around on it all day.. A good idea therefore is to take the heels for photos, but while wandering around at the convention just go for more comfortable shoes. - Don't forget to do some makeup tests before you go to the convention. Not only is the exercise important so that you don't ruin it on the day itself, but also take a look at the makeup in different light. Who knows, it will look great in your bathroom, but as soon as you're in real sunlight, you'll see that it makes you paler or just more pink than expected. So experiment with that makeup a little bit, especially if you - just like me - have no experience with makeup. - Practice poses in advance for photos. This one is more important than I expected actually. Because suddenly there's someone who wants to take a picture of you in your cosplay and then your head goes empty. How should I stand? Where do I keep my hands? Therefore, practice some poses beforehand and do not be afraid to look at reference photos of the character you cosplay. Try out the poses, take some pictures without having to wear the cosplay, see if it looks good, if you might need to adjust some,... Most people are not used to posing and then it quickly feels very uncomfortable, exercise makes that burden a little lighter. You know what you want and how to do it, so you will come across more confidently. - Think about the practical things in advance. A ball gown looks great, but driving on one is often difficult. When will you put on your cosplay? Which parts can you put on in advance and still move easily? And also think in advance how you will go to the toilet. You don't want to stand with an almost snapping bladder and still have to figure out how to get to the toilet with that big ball gown or that bodysuit. - Do not compare yourself too much with other cosplayers. Who knows, they've been doing this for ten years now, logical than their costumes look better. Everyone started somewhere! Instead, let their costumes inspire you, maybe even learn from. Ultimately, you have undoubtedly put a lot of work into your costume, so you can be proud anyway! - Have fun! Keep it fun and airy and just enjoy this fine, creative hobby. Talk to like-minded people about the things you like, go to conventions with friends, share your work,... Hopefully, with this list of tips I have already been able to help some people who think of starting in Cosplay. If there is an interest in more specific tips on how to start cosplay, I might also try to list. Also, there might be a sequel if I have experienced and learned more things. Have fun in your cosplay adventure! #cosplay #cosplaytips #CosplayForBeginners
