Pic(k) of the week 37: Waterfall Wednesday

Just over a year ago a brand-new social networking site was born; initially started by invitation only, "Google plus" (G+) now has 250 million registered users of which about 150 million are deemed "active". 

Because of the way it deals with images, it is the perfect "photographers social network" and is now by far my preferred place to hang out with other photographers. Unlike  Facebook where one connects mostly with people one already knows, G+ makes connecting with unknown photographers from all over the world very easy! It also is a great way of staying inspired, especially by using the free iPad app

To stimulate photography even more, some active members have started themed days like Moon Monday, Tree Tuesday, Travel Thursday, etc...  The most common themes can be found here.

In order to make searching for themed images easier, one tags the images the Twitter way; Tree Tuesday is tagged with #TreeTuesday. 

2012 Pic(k) of the week 37: Waterfall Wednesday

Still working on my images from the recent trip to Iceland, this a perfect opportunity to enter one for the #WaterfallWednesday theme. The image above was shot at the mighty Gullfoss waterfall about 90mins East of the capital Reykjavik. Even though the initial batch of images were all color ones, I've now started converting a small batch as Black & Whites.

A 9 mins slideshow of my best Land of Fire and Ice adventure, can be found below.

For the best viewing experience, make sure you select 1080p in the bottom right corner and that you watch it full screen.
