Goðafoss Waterfall, Iceland

Photograph by Joshua Holko

Goðafoss is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. Located in the central north of the island, translucent aqua water cascades over the horseshoe-shaped falls and races down the canyon. Icicles cling to its rock ledges and fresh snow lies across the landscape under soft diffuse light of the type that only Iceland can deliver.
