Photographer's Note

Hraunfossar (Borgarfjφrπur, western Iceland) is a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjφkull. The waterfalls pour into the Hvνtα river from ledges of less porous rock in the lava. The name hraun comes from the Icelandic word for lava. The Hraunfossar are situated near Hϊsafell and Reykholt and lava-tube cave Vνπgelmir is close by.
