Iceland Part 5 – Waterfalls

_O5A1862

Skogafoss, one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, 25 meters wide and 60 meters drop

Iceland is famous for its waterfalls. The middle of the country is full of glaciers that melt and then flow down the rivers to the sea. There are many places where the rivers drop over cliffs, producing great waterfalls.

I lugged a tripod around Iceland primarily to take some shots of waterfalls. I bought a neutral density filter kit for my camera so that I could slow down the shutter speed and capture the water looking lovely and smooth.
