Gullfoss Waterfall

Gullfoss Waterfall

Gullfoss is a 2-tier waterfall, of 11 metres and then 21 metres drop into a steep-sided canyon. The falls flow from the Langjokull Glacier which is in West Iceland.

Its name means 'Golden Falls', a tribute to how it appears in the summer. But it wasn't golden on the day I made this photograph, when I had to lean into the strong wind and hope that neither a stronger gust, or a sudden wind-drop, didn't have me over.
