Those humans can be a mischievous bunch! That first photo is impressive to me in that you have included some of those crazy humans in the shot to give it scale. I really like that shot.

Hi Gilles: All your Iceland shots have been very informative to me. I never thought much about Iceland as a tourist spot other than to see the glaciers in the wintertime. Your shots have really been interesting, and give to me a completely new impression of the island.

(We have all had fun looking at all the interesting places that you went on your European vacation. Glad you have shared.)

I like them all. Want to go.
How did those par-boiled humans turn out?

Well ... let's say that they ran away for a while

I don't think they were hurt ... but probably a tidy bit scared, wet and warmer

Iceland was only a 2 days step-over going to Europe ... so we basically visited the usual stuff. As a photographer, I can probably get lost there

I was at Gullsfoss in June/July a few years back, on an off-road cycling trip. I recognise the Falls and the area but not the view your camera saw. Unfortunately the "waterproof" bag containing camera and films (exposed and unexposed) sprang a leak, and I didn't realise until too late so the whole lot was destroyed and I have nothing. There's a lot of rain in Iceland, and everywhere on a bicycle is vulnerable. Memory cards would probably have survived with contents, so if i were to go again with a digital camera I'd probably have better success.

I'm really enjoying these pictures.

The first one was at the end of the wood belvedere they builded at the top of the cliff. The other one was very close the the top of the falls.

Great shots. I wonder how high the falls are in the first picture in the front. It looks pretty deep there. Beautiful spot.
