17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Canyon at Glymur Iceland

In the summer of 2018, on a family visit to Iceland, my family took a hike to Glymur. It is the highest, broken-fall waterfall in Iceland. The canyon was carved from the underflow of glacial water. The glacier receded, leaving the deep crevasse that empties into a fjord. The view is from about 3/4 into the hike to the top of the waterfall.
