Arriving at Gullfoss, a big waterfall
There are upper and lower trails. This is the end of the lower trail
Admiring Gullfoss from the lower trail
You really feel the power of water
Many portraits and selfies taken along this trail
Looking back at the start of the lower trail
Constant rainbows from mist produced by the water falling into the 105 foot crevice
Smile!
Superwide action: I am standing right next to Ben, you can see my shadow next to his (both saluting)
Mist collecting on the front element of the fisheye lens
Going up the trail to the parking lot
At the crevice, source of much mist
Superwide view of the crevice.
Going over the edge would make for a bad day
DSLRs are very popular in Iceland
Looks like traditional Icelandic clothing with a traditional Icelandic DSLR.
Upper falls at Gullfoss, from the end of the lower path.
Quite a range of coats, light to heavy. Here are some heavy ones.
Middle set of falls going to the crevice, superwide
Superwide action shot! :)
Contemplating on photographers and falling water
More portraits being taken
Ben shooting the crevice as we go back up the trail
This was what he was seeing
More excellent rainbow action
Rainbows again
Gullfoss waterfall, Iceland. One of the attractions on the Golden Circle route we drove in our rented Kia.
Plaque commemorating Sigríður Tómasdóttir, who worked hard to preserve this site from development.
Details about Sigríður Tómasdóttir, at the junction of the upper and lower trails
Lower trail viewed from the upper trail
Walking along the crevice
Photographers at work
Crevice from up high
Staring into the crevice
Middle falls next to the lower trail
The pair that was contemplating on photographers is still there! Plenty of photographers as well.
Gazing at Gullfoss
Snowy peaks of Iceland in the distance
