Wow Jens! That is a beautiful shot. It is composed so well. the sun leading into the river and then back up through the waterfall. Glad you waited around. They are rare, but those times when the sky breaks open when you are sure it wouldnt are some of the best.
It looks like you’re shooting this from the seat of a Giant Lounge Chair!
There’s a lot going on in this scene:
The area to the left of the largest waterfall looks like a recess in the shape of a bell.
The clouds on the far left are shaped like a horizontal corkscrew, it could be the beginning of some turbulent convection going on there.
To the left of the corkscrew, it appears to be raining quite hard.
There’s even more rain between the two largest waterfalls.
The sunlight illuminating the valley and the giant lounge chair.
The swirling mist at the base of the largest waterfall.
The river drawing my attention to the turbulent convection in the clouds.
The colors and exposure levels.
All are great elements to studying and enjoy!
In my view, the timing was just right, otherwise, some of the most interesting elements to me might not have been there.
And, this reminds me of the movie “Vikings” where “Floki the Boat Builder” was exploring Iceland for the first time.
