Hraunfossar Waterfall, Iceland

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos Hraunfossar waterfall in September looks much as it would have in Viking days: birch trees, bog bilberries, and the Hvítá River, white with silt. The waterfall is a series of springs that plunge into the river on the far bank. See more pictures from the May 2012 feature story, "Iceland’s Resilient Beauty."
