I had a little gasp when I first saw this picture. I thought, "That looks just like Godafoss!" (I don't know how to made the letter for "eth" on this computer.) Very nice photo, and the sky is SO Icelandic!

@Louise: For anyone who has been there it is probably instantly recognisable

Woohoo, it´s really flowing at me! That looks like a place to take some serious photos. Thanks for the icelandic mood.

@chrome3d: I only had 15 minutes but I got quite a number of great photos. I didn't get a chance to actually soak in much atmosphere due to the masses of people around. If you follow the link you'll find some of my other photos from that day. If you set your mind to it though you can almost ignore everyone else and imagine you are alone.
