Gullfoss at Sunset

Gullfoss is by far the most famous of Iceland's hundreds of incredible waterfalls, largely due to its location on the tourist-friendly "Golden Circle," which is a 300km loop of some of Iceland's most dramatic sites in an easy day trip from Reykjavik. In Icelandic, 'gull' means golden and 'foss' means falls, which is an appropriate name for this gorgeous natural wonder in the glow of the late evening sun.

The glacier Hofsjökull (and largest active volcano in Iceland) rises in the background. You can also see a bit of the mist rainbow to the left of the falls.
