Theo Bosboom - Fulmar at waterfall

I am happy that my picture Fulmar at waterfall was awarded at the European Wildlife photographer of the year 2013 (runner up in the birds category). I took the picture on a winter trip this year at the Seljalandfoss waterfall in South Iceland. The nice thing from this waterfall is that you can walk behind it. From previous visits I knew there were lots of fulmars staying in the vicinity of the waterfall the whole winter and that they are flying on and off the whole day. I didn't need much time to take this picture, because it was in my head already for months. The hardest thing was that my lens got very wet from the spray of the waterfall and I had to clean it after every two or three pictures I took.

Location: Seljalandfoss, Iceland
