Nature's Power, Gullfoss Waterfall, Iceland

Gullfoss is a spectacular waterfall in southern Iceland. Split into two tiers, each at right angles from the other, and dropping a total of 32 meters into the ravine below. Hvita River. Mist greets the visitor located on the Golden Circle Tour and only around 125 km from the capital Reykjavik.

This photo was taken near the end of our first night circumnavigating Iceland via highway one. I guess it was around 3am yet, despite the hour, it was exhilarating to witness nature's grandeur and to be revived by the mist that greets all visitors at this most inspiring location.

The overcast weather prevented the stunning sunrise I'd hoped for. Nonetheless, it remains a highlight from a fantastic photography tour.

Iceland I hear your haunting call. I look forward to my next visit, which I hope will be an extended one.
