And why not? :-) Who could resist a visit to this wonderful waterfall if you happened to be passing again. Akureyri is a place I love to visit when I’m in Iceland and Godafoss is a very short drive out of town. You can see pictures from my visit to Godafoss a couple of months ago here and here.
On this visit, with most of the snow now gone, a short scramble down some rocks from a secondary car park got me onto a small beach below the falls, an area previously inaccessible and far removed from the usual viewing areas. Looking across at the many visitors on the other side of the river looking at me, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I had company, it was such a prime spot for a picture or two.
On an otherwise very dull and overcast day, the sun had the good grace to just put in a brief, rather hazy, appearance, just enough to lift the pictures. I was much obliged. I’ve included a couple of pictures taken from above the falls as well as below. As always, gauging scale in pictures like these is difficult and despite a lot of visitors on the other side of the river, none of them wandered to the edge of the gorge and into my shot however, I had a good friend do that for me on a previous visit and you can see the resulting photograph here. I hope you enjoy the images.. :-)
