Going over my photos from my Iceland tour with Nikonians this past summer. These are of Gullfoss, one of Iceland's many waterfalls. This waterfall is somewhat unusual in that the flow in the lower part of the falls is in a direction 90 deg from the flow in the upper falls.
D800, 24-70 f/2.8
1. The view from above the falls. There is a very long flight of stairs down to the lower level. Not bad going down but coming back with a camera bag full of gear and a tripod was an effort for these old legs.
3. This is the view along the lower part of the falls
4. This was shot on the far left edge of that rock formation in 1 and 2 with all the people on it.
It is a popular location. It's on the "Golden Circle" of attractions that is the subject of many tours out of Reykjavik.
I was there the first week in August so it wasn't cold when I was there. Temperature was generally in the 50's F. Not exactly what one thinks of for August in the northern hemisphere where I live but easy enough to dress for and be comfortable.
