Gulfoss..

Following on from my last post, here’s another frozen waterfall.  This one is Gulfoss, one of the main attractions on the ‘Golden Circle’.  The golden circle takes in a number of Iceland’s iconic landmarks, the ones that are within a reasonable distance from Reykjavik that is, making them ideal destinations for tour bus day trips.

For this reason, if I’m going to visit one of these destinations, I usually do so very early.  Usually before breakfast has finished being served in the many hotels that are springing up in Reykjavik to serve the dramatic rise in Iceland’s tourist industry.

These pictures were taken at dawn on a bitterly cold -10°C day.  The wind was blowing hard giving rise to a significant wind chill but properly togged up, this wasn’t a problem.  As the sun began to rise, I began to shoot.
