In 1973 a Douglas C-117 [military version of a DC-3] plane ran out of fuel in bad weather and had to crash land on the black sand a little west of Vik. Thankfully everyone survived, but during the attempted recovery a helicopter ended up crashing and killing some people. Seeing how their luck was going, the Americans decided to cut their losses and abandon the whole mess in the sand. When the local farmer went out there to check things out he figured out that the pilots had mistakenly switched to the wrong fuel tank and actually had a second completely full load. The farmer then had aviation grade fuel to run all his tractors and whatnot for a year. He also sold off the tail to a couple who run a hotel out of a DC.

My kinda image!!    #save

However, Why did you cut off the top of the falls on the right +Christopher Bowler ? Is this cropped or is that how you shot it?

No not cropped its so big only way to get it all would be a pano. This was 14mm on FX

Christopher Bowler14:00Edit
TBH I found the foreground more interesting then the very top of the fall :)

Understand +Christopher Bowler You might consider a vertical stitch in the future; well captured.

That's a really cool perspective compared to the classical front shots of Skógafoss.

Jökulsárlón (literally "glacial river lagoon") is a large glacial lagoon in southeast Iceland, on the borders of Vatnajökull National Park. Situated at the head of Breiðamerkurjökull, it evolved into a lagoon after the glacier started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The lake has grown since then at varying rates because of melting of the Icelandic glaciers. The lagoon now stands 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) away from the ocean's edge and covers an area of about 18 km2 (6.9 sq mi). It recently became the deepest lake in Iceland at over 248 metres (814 ft) depth as glacial retreat extended its boundaries. The size of the lagoon has increased fourfold since the 1970s. It is considered as one of the natural wonders of Iceland. — at Jökulsárlón - Glacier Lagoon.
