I was recently going through my Iceland photos from my visit back in April 2013 and did a re-edit on this photo taken at Skogafoss. Been on my todo list for the longest time to get back to Iceland to explore it further, re-visit the areas I saw last time and to visit the locations I missed before. I know back in April 2013 it was nowhere as near a popular country to visit as it has become now, from what I hear its a huge photographers trap with many people packed in at all the the popular photo spots.
The Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25 metres (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow is normally visible on sunny days. According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall. The legend continues that locals found the chest years later, but were only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. The ring was allegedly given to the local church.
