The Glory of Goðafoss

Goðafoss Godafoss - Waterfall of the Gods

A few posts back, I showed you a peek from Behind The Lens at Goðafoss – Waterfall of the Gods. This is the image that I was taking of this amazing waterfall in the Mývatn district, Northern Iceland.

Goðafoss or Godafoss was named after Christianity became the official religion of Iceland around the year 1000, and the lawspeaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði, threw statues of the Norse Gods into the waterfall.
