Winter Waterfall

I don’t have much to say about this photo. Iceland has an abundance of waterfalls. I absolutly love waterfalls and winter always gives them an element overlooked by many people. This one, Skogarfoss was situated under the Eyjafjallajokull Volcano(I got pretty good an pronouncing Icelandic words however this one still eludes me) which erupted in 2010 causing the well publicized European airspace closure.

A side note to this photo. Beside this waterfall is the Museum of Skógar. This amazing museum boasts artifacts from Icelandic history going from present all the way back to the Viking era. There are also a number of old houses, a church and school preserved from early Icelandic settlements. If you are lucky, you will run into Þórður Tómasson who happens to be the Curator, Founder and owner of a good portion of the collection. We were lucky enough to get a private tour which included demonstrations and even a song on the church’s organ. This was one of the most memorable moments of our trip.
