Vanishing Point

Staying with waterfalls and monochrome for the next couple of posts.

Iceland is a waterfall heaven. There are apparently over 10,000 waterfalls in this country and just because of that I could live the permanently :-)

I have previously posted photos from the Selfoss waterfall and Dettifoss is located very close to it, about 1.5km further north on the Jökulsá á Fjöllum river. In fact, when you walk on the eastern side of the river, you first have to pass Dettifoss to get to the other waterfall.

This is believed to be the most powerful waterfall in Europe. It is around 100m wide and the drop is just over 45m. One really does feel the power of this waterfall, no matter which side of the river you stand on. The flow is quite hypnotising and it was hard to take my eyes of it when we had to finally leave.

Dettifoss featured in the movie Prometheus - the prequel to the Alien series of films.
