Hundreds of thousands of people have come to see the magnificent waterfall of Gullfoss. I believe not many have seen it from this particular angle :)

Gullfoss is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The wide Hvítá rushes southward. About a kilometer above the falls it turns sharply to the left and flows down into a wide curved three-step "staircase" and then abruptly plunges in two stages (11 m and 21 m) into a crevice 32 m (105 ft) deep.

The crevice, about 20 m (60 ft) wide, and 2.5 km in length, is at right angles to the flow of the river. As one first approaches the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, so that it appears that a mighty river simply vanishes into the earth.

The average amount of water running over this waterfall is 140 m³/s in the summertime and 80 m³/s in the wintertime. The highest flood measured was 2000 m³/s.

Autumn colors with company, mount Baula in the background, and the village of Bifröst (see my note on the picture)

What is actually interesting is that this village, Bifröst, has grown around the University. Originally a business school, the university also offers degrees in law and social sciences. As of 2007, it had some 560 full-time resident students in its bachelors, masters and preparatory programs, with 700 other non-resident students pursuing bachelor and master degrees.
