Weekly Photo Challenge: Waterfall Quest

Bruarfoss waterfall, Iceland

When I saw the topic for this week’s photo challenge – “quest” – I immediately thought of our epic quest to find Bruarfoss waterfall. I originally found the waterfall on Instagram, but when browsing TripAdvisor for location information, it quickly became apparent that it’s not found by the less adventurous. After several wrong turns and a few alternative paths, we finally found this sign lying in the mud, pointing in the wrong direction. I won’t lie, I had mud well past my knees before we found the actual waterfall, but oh those colors! The fact that we had it all to ourselves after a long day fighting other tourists for photos was just heaven πŸ™‚

    • It’s actually not far out of Reykjavik along the Golden Circle route. It’s just well off the beaten path – one of those things you have to know about to search for. No doubt it’ll be on the radar before long! That’s an excellent name for them btw πŸ˜‰

      • Those few hours I spent there did it for me. Something about the desolate landscape that appealed to me. We’ve been watching a TV-series called Shetland. Not bad either … those remote islands! My friend [who was here this summer] and I, are planning a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland next year in May.


        • Oh that sounds like a great trip! Scotland is still my favorite place by far, there’s just something about the place that speaks to me. The people and the scotch are just a bonus πŸ™‚ Have you been there before? If you liked Iceland, I think you’ll definitely appreciate Scotland.


    • In truth, I think the mud and the search was part of what made it all worthwhile – sometimes it’s fun to have an excuse to splash around πŸ™‚
      I took a somewhat unintentional break during the trip thanks to a phone issue, but in a way it was a nice break. I am so glad to be reconnected though! πŸ˜€
