Aniol talked to me and proposed that I join his project in Iceland with Mikel and Aleix. I haven't shot any river sports before and didn't really know about them apart from social media, but I've always been passionate about the plasticity of kayaking and I think there's no better way to get introduced to the whitewater than a Red Bull project that was focused on the exploration of new rivers and running waterfalls in Iceland, so I accepted without hesitation.
We struggled finding the right river flows during the first days and scouted many places without any success. We travelled all around the island until we arrived to Aldeyjarfoss, one of the most beautiful waterfalls I've ever seen because of the energy of the water and the strange basaltic stone formations on its sides. It was in the afternoon and the sun wasn't hitting so hard so we had this epic low light.
On spots of this kind it is a one chance shot, because it is definitely too aggressive to repeat it many times, so you have to make sure you don't miss the shot. While Aniol was getting ready I already had the shot on my mind and started testing settings and frames so there's no place for mistakes once he's dropping.
