Gullfloss

By forestrich
Just back from the most amazing trip to Iceland. The weather wasn't the best but these things we can't control and I will definately be making a return visit.
The first upload from my trip is from Gullfloss, which translaes as the Golden Waterfall.
It is by no means the best image technically that I came back with, but the most painful to capture!
Winds in excess of 90 mph were literally lifting me from the ground at times and blowing what felt like ice pellets into my face.
No tripod or filters could have been used, a case of snap and run!
As usual, all comments welcome.
Thanks for looking.

An amazing place at any time of year. Fabulous waterfall. Increible ice build-up on the right hand side there.

Apart from an excellent shot, the commentary fills out the picture. Would have liked to have been there.
