There are flat verdant meadows along Iceland’s coast, but you are never far from mountains that were thrust up by tectonic and volcanic forces. Melting snow and glacial melt fall from the mountains in waterfalls that cascade over vertical cliffs hundreds of feet high. The water from some of the smaller waterfalls evaporates in the wind before it reaches the bottom. The larger waterfalls thunder with such force that they shake the ground and create their own misty wind. While words can’t reveal what it’s like to be in Iceland, neither can photographs.
