Svartifoss (the "Black Falls") is one of the many famous waterfalls dotting the landscape of Iceland. The main falls, as well as many water seeps, bring swathes of verdant greenery to the patterned expanse of hexagonal basalt columns that comprise the cliff face. Besides the mosses & other vegetation, the leaching of minerals by water and scarring of the column faces by freeze/thaw cycles further enhance the texture and color of the rock wall. The result is a scene rife with intricate details, once the wonder of the grander view has been absorbed.
