I have seen this beautiful bridge photographed hundreds of times but never from a unique perspective. So one morning before sunrise I walked through thick bush, jumped a fence and continued along a train track before stumbling across this magnificent view.
This is Aldeyjarfoss. Located 40 kilometers into the highlands from the Ring Road, Aldeyjarfoss is situated in a lava field that formed over 9,000 years ago. The river’s source is VatnajÃ¶kull’s glacial runoff, while its incredible basalt columns resembles that of its smaller (and more widely known) counterpart, Svartifoss. Clearly, getting here is a testament to taking the least ventured path, as it was impossible to find another soul for miles upon miles.
