Photographer's Note

With a length of 206 km, Jökulsa à Fjöllum is Icelands second longest river. It source lies in the Vatnajökull glacier system and it flows north in to the Greenland sea. It stream over a series of impressing waterfalls and trough the Jökulsarglijufur canyon which forms part of the national park with the same name. The canyon was created some 2000 years ago by a series of glacier floods after the outbreak of Baudarbunga volcano to the south. Considering the recent volcanic activities of Baudarbunga, all roads but one along the canyon and north of it where closed to the public at the period of our visit there and still remind closed to this day.
PS: Info to Craig (macjake): this is a HDR of two shots. I am still learning by doing.
