Iceland is probably the most enigmatic country in the world, one of those places that remind us that the earth is alive. To visit this place is an experience that transforms our perception: we are the product of an amazing device that is everything and the infinite energy flows also in the guts of the Earth. Iceland’s geological activity is a reminder of the beauty, complexity and splendor of energy.

Inhabited by volcanoes, glaciers, rivers and even deserts, Iceland is an aesthetic paradise.  The rivers that cross it are particularly hypnotic due to the transparent spirit of the glacial waters, add a particular element of mystery to this place. Jökulsa à Fjöllum is its most emblematic river: it wanders over halls made of rock, waterfalls and through the most extravagant caves. Detiffoss, is the tallest waterfall that this river visits, and it is also the tallest one in Europe, its descend is 44 meters.

The rocky aspect of the landscape is drawn on stones that extend creating a fantastic surface, like a corrugated sheet that create an apparent parallel reality. The other rocks line-up in whimsically in areas, as if part of the journey’s river was a sea of unruly waves. In other areas, they rise up in monumental, soft and smooth canyons, or they are part of the limestone walls that keep the river safe with their imposing walls.

The Detiffoss waterfall is one of a kind because it is formed by an extraordinary stone canyon. This is a place that transports the viewer to a landscape that resembles the end of the world, or perhaps to its beginning, where nature is the sole and most precious protagonist.
