Godafoss

This is Goðafoss in the Northern part of Iceland. It's about a 45 minutes drive from Akureyri. It is said that the name "Goðafoss" derives from when Iceland decided to be a christian society. Thorgeir Ljosvetningagodi, who got the job of deciding that at Althingi, is said to have gone here when he came home, with all his pagan statues or "goð" and threw them in. Thus the name "Goðafoss"

 

I might add that this photo is taken using multible exposures on the Nikon D300
