Photographer's Note

We briefly visited the Gullfoss the previous day just as the sun was setting. The colors were marvelously golden and my camera wet from the waterfall's uprising shower.
It seemed only natural to return the next morning and spend some time enjoying the inner power of this magnificent waterfall, riding on its wave to heal bits and pieces of our beings.

What the day before had painted in gold, now was washed in grey rain.
We sat and enjoyed the waterfall, hiding periodically under the rock formations around and right by the first parts of the falls. After an hour and dozens (or more) pictures, we decided it was time to leave and head out deeper into the heart of the island.

Remembering that pictures only reflect the world out of context, I asked my orange companion if he could be kind enough and venture to the tip of the waterfall so that I could put it in perspective and allow others who have never seen it live grasp a sense of it's size and power.
This is one of the very last shots I took of the waterfall.
I hope it works :D

It was too rainy and misty for the picture to be very colorful. It turned out quite dark as well. On this version of it I lightened up the foreground and played around with the saturation. I also did some color managing for the green as it turned out more grey than anything when trying to lighten it up.
The original version can be found in the workshop.

I do not have any specific information about the place itself, yet can tell you it is one of the most powerful waterfalls I have ever seen and experienced.

You can find information about the waterfall on the following websites:

An advance Thank You to all those amongst you who take the time to comment and/or criticize :D
