Photographer's Note

This is Godafoss - fall of the gods. As the story goes, around the year 1000, Christianity was declared the official religion, and statues of the old Norse gods were thrown into the falls.

The drop is only about 12 meters, so far less than many others, but it's among the most scenic because of the intensely blue waters. Go early if you want to avoid throngs of people waving selfie-sticks at the edge of your frame.
