Iceland Landscape photo-Glymur Waterfall straight down from above

As far as I know, this is the first shot of Glymur Waterfall seen straight from above and down, so actually this is “one of a kind photo”. (pls. let me know if I’m wrong) (date taken 20th of August. 2013).

He is not much to see from this angle but still he is the second highest waterfall in Iceland 198m high and only Morsárfoss is higher .

It is situated at the rear end of the Hvalfjörður. Since the opening of the Hvalfjörður Tunnel under this fjord, visitor numbers have dropped.

The river Botnsá runs from the Hvalvatn lake and after a short distance the water falls down alongside the Hvalfell mountain into a steep canyon. The waterfall can be accessed from a parking area at the end of the road. Hikers can view the waterfall from marked paths on the east side of the river Botnsá.
