Thank you all very much! You can barely drive a mile without coming across another waterfall in Iceland; they're all so different, from monster falls like this one, to thin trickles. #10300992

Had to make this a favorite. Like Joy said, "Breathtaking!".

Thank you both! It was such an impressive falls (or "foss", as they are called in Iceland.) I wish we'd had time to walk up as close as the guy in the photo, but we were on a deadline ;) #10303073

A stunning image, Christopher...the figure lends a sense of scale to showcase the power and grandeur of the falls. #10307875

Christopher Budny 9/4/2012 7:42:30 AM

Thank you, Gail! It was a stunning waterfall (one of many, many stunners in Iceland.) I would love to have had several hours at every fall we visited or drove past... :) #10307974

The massive wall of water that is Skógafoss in southern Iceland. The water falls about 200 feet with a powerful roar, creating a huge bank of mist.
Apparently during full flood, the wind created by the falls is strong enough to keep you from getting within 50 feet of the falls.
