— Waterfalls in Iceland —

The waterfalls in Iceland are plentiful! There are the famous ones that many have heard of and some only dream of seeing, then there are unnamed waterfalls throughout the country that only few will have the opportunity to gaze upon.

The following two photos are random waterfalls along Ring Road in South Iceland. They may have names, but we cannot tell you what they are or where they are located. They are elegant additions to the stunning landscape that together remind us of Iceland’s nickname, the land of fire & ice.
