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

New on 500px : Dettifoss Waterfall by LarsKrux by LarsKrux

Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe.

The water flows from the Vatnajökull glacier and wide areas in Northeast Iceland to finally flow into the Atlantic Ocean.

Dettifoss is located in the Lake Mývatn area in North Iceland.

Enjoy the view on the waterfall, as well as on the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum with its spray, snow, sun illuminated rocks and the never ending June sunset at midnight

New on 500px : Head in the clouds by rnijholt by rnijholt

Classic Kirkjufell view, except for it’s top covered in clouds. Despite the drizzly weather I really liked this Icelandic must see. I saw a picture from just a week earlier here on 500px, where this landscape was still yellow and brown, while it’s nicely painted in spring green colors here, perhaps even a little more from the rain.

New on 500px : Skogafoss by DrewNicoll by DrewNicoll

I have recently been lucky enough to tour Iceland. on the final few days we arrived at one of Iceland’s most iconic natural marvels – Skogafoss.

At a height of 60m and 25m wide this waterfall is vast and incredibly powerful, the opportunity to hike up the 300+ stairs to the top should not be overlooked. There are also lovely cafe’s for when you return, hosting a friendly and warm welcome from the locals.

In this photo, a man with his girlfriend sprinted off towards the spray and posed for her to take a picture. I seized the opportunity to photograph him to try and give you a more striking perspective of this natural giant.

Thanks, Drew
