Iceland › Goðafoss
Added by James Hueser
Goðafoss is a waterfall that seems to fly under the radar for absolutely no reason. It's a small, but very wide waterfall that's very photogenic.
The parking lot for Goðafoss is clearly signed and you'll be able to see the falls from the parking lot. Just take a quick jaunt up to the falls and find your perfect angle!
Since it was on the backend of winter when I visited, there was ice frozen into spirals on the rock which was really awesome to see. If you're lucky, you might see some reindeer while you're in the area as well!

Majestic, especially in the snow
This waterfall is so cool and unique because it seems to surround you from certain vantage points. It was very snowy when I went, so it seemed like I was in an isolated world that contained only me and the waterfall. Bring your ND filters and you might just be able to capture something truly dramatic.
