This is one of the most spectacular waterfalls of Iceland. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters. In particular, I took this shot from the West side of the river.

It is located in the north of Iceland, at 50 km from Akureyri. Since this waterfall is very close the Ring Road and well signed, it's a popular and place, although the presence of tourists is not overwhelming. It's not as crowded as other waterfalls on the south of the country, where most of the tourists hang around.
