On to Reykjavik – Dryholaey & Seljalandsfoss

We headed back west this morning, leaving the southeast coastal area behind.  Most of the day was spent traveling, but we did manage to make a few stops along the way.  Our first was the southern most tip of Iceland, Dryholaey.

Picture post card – yes!  This is on the road up to the point.

If you remember back a few days, although it seems like forever to me, we stopped here earlier although a bit farther east.  You could make out the arch from a distance, this time we were right on top of it.

Looking back inland toward the black sand beach with the mountains in the back.  Stunning views.

Our next and final stop of the day was another waterfall.  If you’ve been playing along you may have picked up that “foss” in Iceland means falls.  This one is unique in that you can walk all the way behind it from one side, and come out on the other.

It was like trying to photograph in a driving rain storm.  Really hard to keep the lens dry.

It’s hard to describe the power of the water falling, this image gives a bit of an idea the force water in nature has.

Winding down now that were back in the big city.  A few surprises tomorrow I’m sure, then it’s back on a plane to home.

    It looks like this would be a difficult place to leave. It’s a good thing winter is coming and you’ll have plenty of long days to go through your incredible images! Wishing you a good trip back home.
