Aldeyjarfoss | The most beautiful waterfall of the Icelandic highlands
I dreamed of shooting the best waterfalls in Iceland just before the spring snowmelt. Towards the end of winter I only could reach Aldeyjarfoss waterfall by using a super jeep and a snowmobile. Once there I could enjoy one of the most striking views in all Iceland. The river Skjálfandafljót flows under the ice sheet and jumps over a magnificent wall of hexagonal basalt columns which reach twenty metres in height. The powdery blue of the water on the turbulent plunge pool at the base of the waterfall attest to the glacier origin of the watercourse.
