Water flowing on a bed of rocks and sunshine combine to make a colourful canvas at Innra-Hvannagil.

Good series, #1 is my favourite; the mesh like resulting pattern from the sunlight is very interesting.

I like the first one too for its pattern, but also enjoy the colors in the last. BTW, did you use a polarizer?

#1 is also my favorite, the reticulate light on the rocks is spectacular.

Pieter, Paulo, Bob, Francois - thank you.

Bob - no polarizer. I was terrified the conditions would change quickly, I would lose the sun and with it the mesh lines. You can see in the third one that the sun went out.

Nice set. 
I would say water, light and bottom (color) interactions are my favorite thing to shoot right now.  They keep changing and you can go back to the same place under slightly different light, water levels etc and get very different results.  I almost always use a polarizer to balance the surface reflections and the color from the water bottom.  There are sweet spots for shutter speed but they slide a bit depending on the velocity of the flow and how the the secondary waves propagate.
