Waterfalls - Fossar outside Iceland
I have always been a bit fascinated by waterfalls, called fossar in icelandic. And therefore some names ends with foss/fossar
in icelandic, names ending with á means rivers and ending with lćkur means small river.
Here are pictures of waterfalls I have taken through the years while traveling in other countries.
Pictures are orderd alphabetically by continent and then by country name.
