|Description ||The magnifent horseshoe falls of Godafoss in the north of Iceland. Godafoss means the Falls of the Gods, but not quite in the way you might think. With the introduction of Christianity as the official religion in the year 999AD, Thorgeir the Law-Speaker threw his effigies of the pagan gods into the waterfall.|
|Fantastic picture Thorgrim. You've captured the movement of the water perfectly. I can almost hear it thundering over the edge - what force!|
