In Front Of The Giant

During my trip in Iceland, I took the opportunity to photograph amazing places such as Skogafoss. When I already had taken some photos, a man placed himself in front of me. Instead of avoiding him, I took that opportunity to create a different composition to the one I firstly had in mind.
