Danger!

Travelling around Iceland in Winter, one soon realises that signage recommending wearing of crampons, is actually excellent advice. Parking areas, access paths and even walkways to popular sites like Waterfalls and Volcano craters are more often than not, covered with snow and ice, making walking without crampons extremely challenging if not dangerous.

Wanderlust

Iceland is often referred to as the Land of Fire and Ice, add to that Geysirs, Waterfalls, Geothermal Lakes, Black Sand Beaches, Northern Lights, Breathtaking Landscapes etc, enough to fulfil any Wanderlust that may be lurking within you :-). I’ve often read about Photographers saying, that travelling around Iceland takes a long time, because you have to stop all the time, there’s a picture around every corner ……… how true that is. On a visit to this incredible Country earlier this year, I had the opportunity to shoot some of these images, but will definitely have to go back to fetch a whole lot of others that I left behind :-):-).

Graceful

The Merkja river in Iceland has several waterfalls along it’s length, Gluggafoss (Merkjafoss) in Southern Iceland near the town of Hvolsvöllur was one that I had an opportunity to visit. Gluggafoss meaning Window Falls, derives its name from the series windows that appear in the tunnels and grooves formed in the rock by the flowing water cascading gracefully down a series of steps totalling 120metres. Graceful is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images of the these falls and abstracts of it are my response to the prompt..
