Iceland E3 - markhumpage
Gullfoss (Golden Falls) is a massive waterfall located in the canyon of Hvítá river in southwest Iceland. 
It is is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. The wide Hvítá rushes southward and 1km above the falls it turns sharply to the left and flows down into a wide curved three-step "staircase" and then abruptly plunges in two stages into a crevice 105 ft deep. The crevice is 60 ft wide, and 2.5 km in length, is at right angles to the flow of the river. 

The part frozen falls took my breath away as I first approached. Spectacular is just not grand enough to describe it. I trust the pictures help. More great close ups of the crevice. Olympus E3, 12-60mm SWD.
