Seljalandsfoss is one of Icelands most beautiful waterfalls. It´s not the highest or mightiest but the fact that you can walk behind it makes it special. It is clearly visible from Icelands main ring road, first as a distant small white streak but grows ever larger as you approach the beautiful Eyjafjallajökull glacier, from which the river flows from.


The river is a fresh water river , not a glacier melt river. The cliffs in the mountains around Eyjafjallajökull, called Eyjafjöll, are covered with lush green vegetation from all the fertilizer which the nesting seabirds, which live there, bring to them.


This shot was taken on late evening on my way back to Reykjavík after a very successful photographic session around south and south-east Iceland with Lucie Debelkova.
