Early evening light at Hrafnabjargafoss in northeast Iceland. This waterfall has some serious power and it was quite an experience standing near the edge.

Hrafnabjargafoss was a bit more difficult to reach than most of the waterfalls we visited during our trip to Iceland. A 4WD with good clearance is pretty much required to reach the falls from the F26.

On this particular evening, I had planned to shoot this waterfall, then move north and shoot Aldeyjarfoss and Godafoss on our way back to our campsite in Myvatn. Everything was looking really good for some nice sunset light above the waterfalls, when all of the sudden the thickest fog I've ever seen rolled in from the north. The fog was so dense that we couldn't see more than about 50 feet in any direction. While the fog was interesting, it pretty much shut down the sunset light. Gotta love the Iceland weather...there is no way to predict it! Luckily I was able to capture this image just before the fog arrived.

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you have. I really appreciate all of the thoughtful comments.
