This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole.
“Monochrome Madness” is now in its fifth year of existence. Look at Leanne’s site on Wednesday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.
I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.
Look at the tiny men walking down the path from the parking ground. Look at the enormous spray above the cataract. Believe me, you’ll get wet when walking there.

As this is the first week of a month, we have a theme. This week it is “movement”.
It’s a long exposure of the upper cataract of the Gullfoss waterfall in southern Iceland.

Another image from Iceland. It’s taken during my trip in summer 2014. Many more images are already here in my blog. You can find them by using the tag “Iceland“.
This waterfall is one of the favorite places I’ve seen in Iceland.

This is the last waterfall, we visited on our trip on Iceland. It is also located directly beside the Ring-Street “Route 1” and, as well as Skógafoss, well equipped with a parking ground and a camping site.
This one was even more crowded than Skógafoss. I guess, that’s because it is less far away from Reykjavik and you can do a short round walk around the falling water. There is a small cave right behind the water curtain. (Even you in the cave, you get wet!) The water falls 66m from the cliff. And the water dust is distributed everywhere. Be prepared to wear water-resistant clothes and keep your gear dry!
Did you miss the waterfalls in the last weeks here in my Iceland series? They are back 🙂
One short stop at Skógafoss. The water falls about 60m and is about 25 broad. It is quite easy to reach, because it is located right beside the Route 1, the Ring-Street. Which is surrounding the whole island. Thus, this one is easily to watch even by disabled people. The downside is, many people are here.
A quite big parking ground, a camping site and a hotel are completing the scene right hand from the waterfall and in the back of me, while photographing the above scene. You even could step up stairs to two or three platforms on the right side of the fall up to the top of the hill. Because of the weather conditions I passed on that and stayed on the water level.
