Aldeyjarfoss waterfall is situated in the north of Iceland at the northern part of the Sprengisandur Highland Road which means it is to be found within the Highlands of Iceland.
One of the most interesting features of the waterfall is the contrast between the black basalt columns and the white waters of the fall.
The river Skjálfandafljót drops here from a height of 20 m. The basalt belongs to a lava field called Frambruni or Suðurárhraun, hraun being the Icelandic designation for lava.
Iceland October 2014 at sunset
I shot 90 minutes of pictures from just before sunset till about an hour after the Sun went down and I am still working on them. This one is my favourite so far, a beautiful place that is worth a visit if you are in the area.

La Strada n. 1 Hringvegur, consente di fare il periplo dell'Islanda, è la strada più importante del paese e non è totalmente asfaltata. E' impossibile percorrerla senza femarsi ogni pochi chilometri per ammirare la selvaggia maestosità della natura islandese.
Qui una lingua del principale ghiacciaio del Paese, il Vatnajokull, arriva fino a valle a lambire la strada...
Un sogno nel vento!!!!!!

An Icelandic beach view at sunset - the large boulder lead us towards grand mountains covered in snow and a golden tone of the setting sun.

Laki, or Lakagigar ("Laki craters"), produced the earth's largest basalt lava eruption in historical times in the 1780'ies. The fluorine gases that followed killed 75% of Iceland's livestock and led to a famine that cost the life of 20.000 people - a significant fraction of the Iceland population at that time.
Large areas are covered with black ashes, where a yellow moss is the dominant vegetation. The whole scenery is almost monochromatic black/yellow.
A must-see on Iceland, but unfortunately not very easy to reach. The position for this shot is unfortunately very inaccurate.
Eldgjá is the larges volcanic canyon in the world. Ofærufoss was once the most photographed waterfall on Iceland, due to a basalt bridge above the lower part of the falls, but it collapsed sometimes during the winter 1993-1994.
Atardecer en una pequeña iglesia de un Valle de Islandia…
Sunset at the little church in a valley of Iceland ...
The small peninsula, or promontory, Dyrhólaey (120m) (formerly known as Cape Portland by English seamen) is located on the south coast of Iceland, not far from the village Vík. It was formerly an island of volcanic origin, which is also known by the Icelandic word eyja meaning island.
The view from up there is interesting: To the north is to be seen the big glacier Mýrdalsjökull. To the east, the black lava columns of the Reynisdrangar come out of the sea, and to the west the whole coastline in the direction of Selfoss is visible - depending on weather conditions. In front of the peninsula, there is a gigantic black arch of lava standing in the sea, which gave the peninsula its name (meaning: the hill-island with the door-hole).
In the summertime, many puffins nest on the cliff faces of Dyrhólaey.
A stunt pilot (Tomme Tailor) is said to have flown through the arch at Dyrhólaey.
The very first lighthouse was built on Dyrhólaey in 1910. The present lighthouse was built in 1927, and the building materials were transported by boat to the port Dyrhólahöfn and pulled up onto the promontory along a cable from the shore. The lighthouse is quite a large construction, three-storeys high. During the first decades after the lighthouse was built, the lighthouse keeper had a sheepcote and a barn not far from the lighthouse, and around the houses he grew grass and made hay.
This was our last shoot in Iceland - the dawn of the day before we left. Things started out seemingly hopeless as we couldn't even see 20m of road in front of us as we started the long drive back to Reykjavik at 545am. Magically, 10 minutes later, we could see!!! and then this happened with the glacier rapidly being lit pink by the rising sun.
The weather granted us a great gift to see this as a parting sight of Iceland.
