This is Godafoss waterfall. I took this using an ND filter to give me a slower shutter speed.

The Gošafoss (Icelandic: waterfall of the gods or waterfall of the goši) is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. It is located in the Mżvatn district of North-Central Iceland at the beginning of the Sprengisandur highland road. The water of the river Skjįlfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters.

In the year 999 or 1000 the Lawspeaker Žorgeirr Ljósvetningagoši made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. After his conversion it is said that upon returning from the Alžingi, Žorgeirr threw his statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall. Žorgeirr's story is preserved in Ari Žorgilsson's Ķslendingabók.

Hello Karan,

Interesting point of view to this dramatic play of nature!
A great waterfall, well framed by something that looks like volcanic rock...

Hi Karan,
Amazing view, well captured from nice angle. I love the detailed rock surface as a foreground to complement the beauty of the waterfall scenery. Colors and clarity are great.


Hi Karan,
An unbelievable beautiful nature !!
Great capture, but to my taste a tiny little bit too much foreground. Good colors, sharpness and clearity.
