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

This photo was taken at roughly 4:30am. Our hotel was evacuated because a kid pulled the fire alarm. I grabbed my camera bag and walked down 14 flights of stairs to get outside. Since I didn’t have my tripod I set the camera on a post and held it as still as possible while the shutter was open…

New on 500px : Cinque Terre by photocreations by photocreations

The Cinque Terre (Italian pronunciation: [ˌtʃinkwe ˈtɛrːe]) is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. “The Five Lands” comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside. The Cinque Terre area is a very popular tourist destination.

The villages of the Cinque Terre were severely affected by torrential rains which caused floods and mudslides on October 25, 2011. Nine people were confirmed killed by the floods, and damage to the villages, particularly Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare, was extensive.

The 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull
This one is taken early in the mornig April 17th 2010, i arrived there the day before and decided to stay over night in my car to get the beautiful volcanic sunrise, i had been awake for more than 24 hours when this was taken but it was well worth the wait, this is probably the most powerful experience of my life and being close to such a force is an unexplained feeling and i can´t wait to experience it again and hopefully it will be a short wait as mountain Hekla could blow off any time with a short notice. There is now more molten rock below Hekla than there was before it last erupted, in 2000 so it could by a powerful one
