While shooting Dettifoss waterfall I have noticed a path along the river. Not every tourist walk there because it is a kind of physical effort. After a 30 minutes walk I have seen another waterfall, called Selfoss. Selfoss is a waterfall on the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum in the north of Iceland. The river drops over a number of waterfalls over about 30 km before flowing into Öxarfjörður, a bay of the Arctic Sea. The river originates as melt water from the glacier Vatnajökull and therefore the water flow varies depending on the season, the weather and volcanic activity. A few hundred meters downstream of the Selfoss waterfall (11 metres high), the Dettifoss waterfall is situated, the most powerful waterfall in Europe. The river falls 44 metres over a width of 100 metres. Below the falls, the river passes through a gorge which is part of the Jökulsárgljúfur National Park. Dark character of location has convinced me to play with color. This shot was taken with Nikkor 17-55 f/2.8. For higher resolution and more Playing with color photographs visit the gallery
