northern lights over Aldeyjarfoss waterfall in Iceland
The Aldeyjarfoss waterfall is situated in the north of Iceland at the northern part of the Sprengisandur Highland Road which means it is to be found within the Highlands of Iceland. One of the most interesting features of the waterfall is the contrast between the black basalt columns and the white waters of the fall. In this, it is similar to the much smaller Icelandic waterfall Svartifoss in Skaftafell. The river SkjA¡lfandafljA³t drops here from a height of 20 m. The basalt belongs to a lava field called Frambruni or SuA°urA¡rhraun, hraun being the Icelandic designation for lava.
