Another waterfall in Iceland, one of thousands hence I have no name, just off the side of the road it begged to be photographed. With its snow capped, mountainous interior and huge glaciers, Iceland has some of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world; I never tire of looking at and listening to them, this results in a fall in blood pressure and a rise in the bank overdraft as Iceland is quite an expensive holiday destination, but worth every penny.
To give you an idea of the amount of water locked in the ice and released in the warmer weather: ~
Gullfoss waterfall (a previous picture posted) has water pouring over its brink in the summer at the rate of 140 cubic metres a SECOND, this equates to filling about 5 road petrol tankers of the largest type every second, this can rise (depending on temperature), the highest recorded was 2000 cubic metres a second (about 50 petrol tankers a second), in the winter the average is a mere 80 cubic metres a second (2 petrol tankers per second). The figures for 24 hours are quite staggering at the average of 140 cubic metres, 1 minute = 8,400, 1 hour = 504,000 and 1 day = 12,0960,00 cubic metres or 302,400 petrol tankers. As I said previously there are thousands of waterfalls in Iceland but of course many of them are on the same rivers, nonetheless there are still many rivers spilling into the sea carrying phenomenal amounts of fresh water.
Comparatively speaking the waterfall pictured is a mere trickle.
