Looking at a Curtain - Dettifoss - Iceland

The Dettifoss is a very powerful waterfall on the glacial river Jökulsá á Fjöllum nestled in Iceland's version of the Grand Canyon - Jökulsárgljúfur. With a flow of about 500 cubic meters per second at high flow, this 44m tall 100m wide monster is quite possibly Europe's most largest and most powerful waterfall. This milky colored waterfall is fed by the meltwaters of the vast Vatnajökull glacier. Viewpoints are available on both sides of the falls.
