Gullfoss (or Golden Falls) originates from The wide Hvítá river flows southward, and about 1 km above the falls it turns sharply to the right and flows down into a wide curved three-step "staircase" and then abruptly plunges in two stages (11 metres or 36 feet, and 21 metres or 69 feet) into a crevice 32 metres (105 ft) deep. The crevice, about 20m wide and 2.5 km in length, extends perpendicular to the flow of the river. The average amount of water running down the waterfall is 140 cubic metres (4,900 cu ft) per second in the summer and 80 cubic metres (2,800 cu ft) per second in the winter. We arrived at Gullfoss on 10.09.2018 as our first stop.
I used two setups here. For still images, I used my SONY α7RIII and SONY FE 16-35mm f/2.8 GM lens, mounted on my Gitzo Mountaineer GT-1542 and FLM 32FP ballhead. I used NiSi CPL, NiSi GND .9 Soft and Nisi ND8 filters to capture these shots. My other setup was mainly for timelapse, where I used SONY α7SII and Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D with NiSi CPL, mounted on the Leofoto LS-284C and Leofoto LH-30 ballhead. I had also flown my dji Mavic Pro Platinum here for about 20 minutes.
Some tips on Gullfoss:
A short drive away from Gullfoss, there is Bru's Horse Farm. Here, one gets to touch and pat the horses, while taking selfies with the fabulous creature.
