Photographer's Note

Barnafoss waterfall - translates to ‘Children’s Waterfall’ with the glacial river, Hvita flowing through the chasm that appears in the lava field

The story of Barnafoss
There used to be a stone arch that bridged the river. One Christmas day, a local household went to attend mass, with the exception of two children who stayed home ill. When the household returned, the children had vanished but their tracks led to the river. The children had fallen off the arch and drowned. Their mother then had the arch destroyed to prevent such a recurrence of such a tragedy.
