Godafoss - the Waterfall of The Gods - is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. It is located in the north-central region along Route 1 between Akureyri and Myvatn.

It was raining heavily in the days before we visited the waterfall and the flow was massive. This meant that I had to watch the wind direction to avoid excess spray ending up continuously on my filters. Sudden changes in wind direction were especially annoying.

The spray did not worry me too much though because we were greeted by one of the better sunsets during our entire Iceland trip. I had plenty of time to scout various composition and this was not an easy task, as the falls are massive and no one angle can really give the idea of their size.

I hope you enjoy my first post in 2016 and I look forward to seeing all of your new photos this year!
