Hengifoss

Music for today : Hang you from the heavens by The dead weather

 

The wonderful waterfall of Hengifoss (literally traduced by the hanged waterfall) in a long exposure shot!!

 

a little description of the fall and her red lines: Hengifoss is a spectacular waterfall which falls down 120 meters in a magnificent gorge.

 

It is located in Fljótsdalur and faces Hallormsstaður across Lagarfljót river.

 

At the top of Hengifoss there are basalt strata and sandstone beneath them containing fossilized tree trunks, which proves that the climate in Iceland was warmer during the Tertiary period.

 

The red strates are eruptions deposit through the centuries so there you can date more than seven eruptions.

 

A little beneath Hengifoss is another waterfall, called Litlanesfoss.

It is smaller but quite beautiful and lies in a columnar basalt setting. ( www.reykjavikcenter.is/ )
