1 Dettifoss
2 Rapid
3 Selfoss, 0,7 km


Location: Dettifoss western bank (325 m)      by: Jan Lindgaard Rasmussen

In the dettifoss-area, 2 waterfalls and a so-called rapid can be seen within 2 kilometers. Above comes an un-named rapid, then the picturesque waterfall Selfoss, and finally, the mighty Dettifoss. Also, the desolate nature of the landscape can be seen here. On a grey day like this, it is a far cry from the lush, and rainbow-clad nature of Gullfoss.

Pano made from 22 HF (RAW) 50 mm, iso-125, f/5,6, 1/320 sec, developed in DPP (daylight, neutral, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, scaling and sharpeness in Irfanview.


Great continuation (or climax?) of your series. Personally I find this perspective even more interesting and attractive than the seemingly more popular viewpoints near to the waterfall. Cheers, Martin

Even if Dettifoss is barely visible, this pano gives an accurate impression of the context of both falls. Regards Peter

Graue Einsamkeit war mein erster Gedanke beim Betrachten dieses Panos.

Martin and Peter, I am glad you see it like that.

Jörg, this was indeed the most grey day of the whole journey :-)

I don't have much moore from here, so I will move on from here. LG Jan.
