Waterfalls and Mountains at Sunset / by Ed Shanahan

Kirkjufellsfoss, the waterfall, and Kirkjufell, the mountain, are located on a peninsula that juts into the Atlantic Ocean a few hours north and west of the capital of Iceland.  When we arrived there the sky was overcast and it didn't appear that it was going to cooperate to make this a memorable sunset.  But it did.  Shortly before this photo was taken, the clouds cleared at the horizon where the sun was setting, and the sun, once it dropped into this space, began to illuminate the clouds above with spectacular colors.  This was one of the last shots in Iceland and I think was a good way to end my trip :)
