Skógafoss

Skógafoss

 

The spectacular Skógafoss waterfall, south-west Iceland.

Skógafoss, with a width of 25 meters and a drop of 60 meters, is originated by the water of the river Skógaá that falls from the cliffs of the former coastline.
After the coastline had receded into the sea (it is now at a distance of about 5 km from Skógar), the cliffs stayed behind parallel to the coast over hundreds of kilometers, creating together with some mountains, a clear border between the Lowlands and the Highlands of Iceland.

Wind and Dunes – Wharariki Beach, New Zealand

Outstanding landscape of wind and dunes. Wharariki Beach, New Zealand.

Remote, desolate Wharariki Beach in the Golden Bay is a wild introduction to the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand, with mighty dune formations, looming rock islets just offshore and a seal colony at its eastern end.

Seljalandsfoss, a spectacular waterfall, south-west Iceland.

Seljalandsfoss is created by the river Seljalandsá, originated from the Eyjafjallajökull glacier, that drops 60 metres over the cliffs of the former coastline. It is possible to go in a cave behind the waterfall to admire the spectacle of falling water.
Seljalandsfoss is situated in between Hvolsvöllur and Skógar at the road crossing of the Ring Road with the track going into Þórsmörk.
