Moonlight over Black Waterfall, Iceland

Svartifoss – the Black Waterfall – on Iceland’s south coast is a popular destination for hikers and tourists. It drops from a crescent-shaped cliff made of black basalt columns.

Grafixart Sam submitted this photo of Svartifoss (the Black Waterfall) on August 31, 2018. This glorious waterfall is located in Iceland’s Vatnaj√∂kull National Park, on Iceland’s south coast. It drops 65 feet (20 meters) and got its name because the cliff from which it falls is made of hexagonal black basalt columns, of a type found elsewhere in Iceland.

Here’s a great description of hiking to Svartifoss

Thank you, Grafixart Sam!
