Hraunfossar in Fall
The autumn season is short lived almost anywhere, including Iceland. I was happy to catch a nice window of fall color while traveling to Iceland in September with some of the best views at Hraunfossar. Iceland's landscapes are amazing on their own, but with the autumn hues, it was spectacular.
