This is not the biggest nor the most powerfull waterfall in Iceland, but I think it's the most amazing of them all. From the parking lot it seems like a normal waterfall running down the side of a mountain, but when you get closer you notice there is a path leading from the side that let's you walk completely around the back of the waterfall in this huge cave-like formation! Only when you walk behind the waterfall can you truly feel how magnificent it is. It's not easy to take photos in the cave because the wind keeps throwing water in your face (and lens) almost all the time.
To put the waterfall in scale, there are four people in the photo, can you spot them all? =)

I Hope you like it!

#Taken with Samyang 14mm lens, I'll have to fix the EXIF later.. =/

the tall viewing of this photo is a reveal in itself as you scroll down it confused me as to how it was orientated with the curvature which in itself was an amazing way to view as if seeing it in a different setting entirely until i saw the entire piece i was suddenly captivated and surprised by its splendor not noticing the water as I scrolled thinking it as being a cloud in the horizon since the picture was tilted in the wrong way as it appeared at first until i saw the rest it could be an interesting way to reveal this work in digital form instead of boom thee it is.
A truly massive and impressive work of art to be seen as it is though some more clouds would set the stage for more dramatics but remove the previous reveal scenario. A fish eye lens may take it to another level but ruin the suppleness as it is other ways are your choice though the photographer is always the best critic in one self without the discretion of others guidance. Thank you for your efforts and hope you continue your work
