The waterfall and the bird

Glymur waterfall is the highest waterfall in Iceland, but you don't get to meet so many people as it's actually one of the hardest to reach. You have cross a running river, and then to climb up to the top of the canyon. Petrels in Iceland often nest around rivers and waterfall, so I knew I had good chances to spot some of them close to the waterfall, flying around.
