Photographer's Note

Selfoss is a spectacular sequence of about 20 waterfalls in parallel along the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum, which carries melted water from the glacier Vatnajökull. It's just up-stream from the taller and more powerful Dettifoss, but it's less visited, because to get to it, you have to climb over and around large rocks for what seemed to be about 1/2 a mile. There's no direct access - Park on the East side of Dettifoss, and hike if you dare.

But - once you get there ... it's a WOW! Icelanders like to leave things natural, and there are no ropes, fences or warning signs, so intrepid photographers go right to the edge for their "money" shot.
