Iceland 10 – Waterfalls

After a late night editing aurora photos, we got off to a leisurely start today.  We began by visiting the same mountain and waterfall (Kirkjufellsfoss) where we had been the night before for the aurora session.  The place looked so different in the day that we didn’t even realize it was the same place until ...

We had never seen the Aurora Borealis (aka Northern Lights) before, and scheduled this trip specifically to have a chance at them.  It has been raining for days, and no chance for them until tonight.
