Dynjandi Rock

Dynjandi Rock

Dynjandi waterfall

The Dynjandi waterfall in the Westfjords is the mother of all Icelandic waterfalls. There is every type of waterfall here. The strong flutes, the power walls, the delicate, flowing water cascades through green moss.  The main attraction is the huge cascade at the top. It is an uphill hike of 15-20 minutes to get to the huge cascade. From here there are great views down the fjords.

Create your own website

Are you thinking of building your own photo website? There are so many tools to help photographers display and sell their photos online.  Having your own website is like owning a property, you don't have to pay commission to third party online galleries  Siteground are the best webhosts I have used in my 15 years of running icelandaurora.  They are currently having a sale.  Use this LINK to get a massive discount on hosting plans.

Camera Challenge

Dynjandi is easily the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland, but very challenging to photograph. The major challenge here is that your lens is going to distort the shape of the big one. To get up to its level you have to be stood under it and looking up the mountain. I have seen some reasonable attempts from the side, but then that doesn’t really show the grandeur. My solution was to ignore the bigger picture and take a straight forward slice from the middle of the cascade.

 

Camping

I usually camp here because there is a ice campsite with basic facilities right at the base of the complex.  Sleeping to the gentle roar of a waterfall is a wonderful experience.
