    AN UNBELIEVABLE LOVE STORY

    by davidjo Written Jul 23, 2015

    Favorite thing: In the 17th century there was a son of a Brattholt farmer who looked after his sheep in the pastures at Hvita, a little way upstream from Gullfoss. Hamarsholt was located on the other side of the river where a girl also kept watch on her family's sheep. For some time they had been eyeing each other up and eventually the girl persuaded the boy to wade across the river. Apparently he did, they got married and lived happily ever after. do you think this is true? is it possible to wade across this raging river?

    Gullfoss Waterfall...

    by coceng Updated Aug 27, 2004

    Fondest memory: The canyon where the Gullfoss Waterfall flows into is called Gullfossglujur Gorge...On a sunny day, the water would so clear that sometimes Gullfoss is also called The Golden Waterfall...
    So...this was my last photo at the Gullfoss Waterfall...(snif ! snif !...)
    On this photo, you can see the craggy cliffs that I climbed up to, The car park where the buses were parked & also the path where the spectators were walking towards the waterfall...
    After this, I slowly walked back to the bus, this time taking the steps, which was over the cliffs that you could see on the right side of my photo...
    Goodbye Gullfoss !
    You have given me a great memory of being in Iceland !

    For a better contrast of how big the area is, look at my photo on the left !
    So, it was on the left of this photo where I clamber up the craggy cliffs !
    It's not that hard but slippery, anything could happen !

    by coceng Updated Aug 27, 2004

    Fondest memory: Gullfoss Waterfall is Iceland most famous waterfall, thanks to the accessibility of the most famous excursion called The Golden Circle Tour !
    It is situated on the mighty glacial River Hvita (White River)...
    Now, moving my camera more to the left...of where the Hvita River was approaching the rocks; We can see the start of 'waves of mutilation' !
    Beautiful !

    Not enough of one photo down below, near the waterfall...
    "Excuse me sir, can you take a photo of me ? Doesn't matter if you can't capture the whole of me but make sure you capture 'the waves of mutilation' down below, okay !
    I retorted to the photographer...
    The result, you can see on the left !

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: Gullfoss Waterfall is Iceland most famous waterfall, thanks to the accessibility of the most famous excursion called The Golden Circle Tour !
    It is situated on the mighty glacial River Hvita (White River)...
    Then, I wanted to be adventurous !
    I wanted to capture the waterfall from the top view...
    There were steps leading to the hill next to the waterfall, but it means that I had to walk back to the where the bus was parking...
    Instead I climbed up the craggy cliffs, slippery & all...but managed to be at the top & hence I could captured the photo that you are looking now, on the left...

    More gushing water, Arnaud !
    At the same time being careful so that no splashing of water entering my cheap camera...I still had a lot more to capture around Iceland !

    Now, it's time for somebody to take a photo of myself...
    "Just make sure you cover everything okay !"
    I said to the photographer...
    What I meant was to cover my body from the head to my feet; The gushing water behind me & the rock that I was standing on...All in one photo...
