Hraunfossar Waterfall, Iceland

Photograph by Orsolya and Erlend Haarberg

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

Hraunfossar waterfall in September looks much as it would have in Viking days: birch trees, bog bilberries, and the Hvítá River, white with silt. The waterfall is a series of springs that plunge into the river on the far bank.
