Svartifoss waterfall is in the Skaftafell National park & is an easy hike from the visitor center. This famous waterfall emerges from the top of a horse-shoe of Basalt Columns. The black appearance of the basalt gives the Waterfall its name – Svart means Black & Foss means Falls.
I took this photo on a wet Summer’s day. I clambered up the western bank of Svartifoss underneath some precarious columns of dense basalt rock. The foreground features a fallen column which has grown a shrubbery. I like the interaction of nature here as well as the source of the moisture in the background.
