    WOW this just is intense, and perfect at showing the enormity of the power.

    I'd mark it with a bunch of little boxes showing my favorite spots...but then it'd take up the entire picture.

    Stórglæsileg mynd - flottir litir - magnaður kraftur - flott hvernig fólkið gefur myndinni meiri dýpt og skerpir tilfinningu fyrir öllum hlutföllum

    The luminance is brilliant, and the clouds simply radiate in the solid blue sky background. I also like the contrast of the sharp clouds against the softness of the falling water and the mist below. The lighting and positioning creates some lovely shadows and contrasts below. It is a triumph of composition.
