Skógafoss is one of Iceland’s largest waterfalls and we made sure to stop during our trip along the southern coast. One of the things we loved about Iceland was the freedom to walk up and experience the natural wonders without any of the usual “tourist attraction” stuff—no gates, no park rangers, none of that herded-through-like-cattle type of thing. It made the country feel even more wild and remote.
The falls are so large that the spray usually creates a rainbow. It was quite overcast during our visit, so the spray only coated my lens. We set up the tripod timer and ran to get into place for a self portrait, but lost all focus to the spray and got completely soaked.
