Freezing Falls of Kirkjufellfoss

So many of Iceland's iconic waterfalls take less work than you'd think to reach. The Ring Road highway that winds around the island often leaves you with just a few hundred feet to walk from your car to take in the majestic sites.

The real challenge begins with photographing the falls. All sorts of chilly spray blasts not only your face, but the lens of your camera--covering it with water that threatens to blur your image. I was fighting that very blur with a near-soaking cloth while kneeling near this pile of pumice and ice in front of Kirkjufellfoss. And I was loving every minute of it.
