Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon

This photo shows the Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon located in Southern Iceland off the ring road. It was very exciting to drive to the location as you need to take an F-Road to get to it. The F-Roads are Iceland's off-road routes, so it can get a bit bumpy when driving them. After I arrived there, I hiked to the location and found a small peninsula above the gorge small enough that I could fit my camera and tripod. It was a tight fight with very dangerous falls to the front and back of me.
