"I really don't think that you should show this one to Mum"

Dettifoss is reputed to be Europe's largest waterfall in terms of volume of water plunging down its 45m (150ft) height.

Unfortunately for us our visit was on a pretty minging day. The car thermometer read 1C as we rattled our way in a mixture of rain and sleet up the corrugated gravel road to the falls. But it was a most worthwhile journey, the falls were dramatic to say the least (though I think that the guidebook's "you can hear them for miles" was a touch of hyperbole!).
