Kolugljúfur Canyon


A beautiful lesser known Icelandic waterfall cascading through a deep gorge. According to a legend, the gap is created by the female troll Kola and that her treasures are buried nearby. The hill is protected by a spell from the troll.

The area provides you with endless angles of views and details. Definitely a place to stop and to enjoy the scenery.

East of Dettifoss

Photography, Travels

We first visited the east side of Dettifoss. The road is bumpier and there are less visitors. As we arrived in the evening we had the falls almost to ourselves.

From the carpark you first arrive at powerful Dettifoss. Even if you don’t see the waterfall you hear the majestic sound it creates.

A shirt walk upriver brings you to the beautiful Selfoss waterfall. A long water curtain

On the way back to the carpark we were facing this magical sunset over the gorge

perfect moments, Photography

For weeks on end the sky was grey and a thick layer of snow covered the countryside. Last Sunday it changed to a blue sky and bright sunlight. That was the moment to get out with a camera and enjoy the sun beams. I availed myself of the opportunity of trying my hand at HDR photography. The bright sky on one hand and the waterfall in the shadow on the other provided the ideal facility.
The amazing evening colours reminded me of my penchant for cold winter sunsets. The lights are intense and range from deep blue to burning red. A phenomenon hardly witnessed during the warmer summer time.
