Sunny Seljalandsfoss

Seljalandsfoss was one of the first waterfall photos I saw of Iceland and upon seeing it I was amazed and knew I had to visit one day. So to finally see it in person was definitely a dream come true! One of the unique features of this waterfall is you can walk behind it, however when I went in March the ice was starting to melt and we were discouraged from walking behind or risk getting impaled by falling ice shards. Ah well, all the reason to visit Iceland again!

 

Some amusing things that happened here:

1. There was a small Icelandic wedding happening that day in front of the waterfall with the guys dressed in suits, the bride, and bridesmaids in their matching dresses. It was probably right around 32F/0C that day so I salute them for toughing it out.

2. There was a girl who tried to follow her much taller boyfriend in jumping across one of the side streams. She thought she made it across but then fell backwards into the water and was soaked from head to toe. Again it was 32F/0C that day :) At least the boyfriend was a gentleman and held up a towel to cover the door while she changed in the car later.
