Kolufossar 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.
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.
