Roaring waters of Gullfoss...

By Fred263
I've been away on holiday and was only able to visit the site occasionally. Please bear with me while I catch up gradually. I have missed viewing & commenting on your great images

I hope you may like my archived images which were taken during a drive around Iceland with friends in May 2017. It was quite noisy due to the sound of the fast flowing volume of water plunging down into the ravine with the rising spray above. It also looks quite dramatic in the Mono version. It was also possible to walk on the path above the waterfall. Best viewed Large as you can also see people walking on the cliff on the right.

Gullfoss is an iconic waterfall located in the canyon of the Hvita river in southwest Iceland. It is is well known for its multi-step cascade along a 90 bend of the Hvita River

Thanks for looking & have a great day.Smile

Very dramatic, Fred.
I agree with with BF he is quite right I think its because the colour brings the image to life where Mono
has dulled it down slightly

Colour is my choice Fred, so good to see moving water, well taken
