The setting sun can create quite some stunning special effects. Sometimes, if the conditions are right, something truly spectacular can occur. A magical phenomenon that literally produces waterfalls of fog. I was incredibly lucky to run into this by chance, on the island of Heimaey (Vestmannaeyjar), just off the south coast of Iceland. I went for a midnight scramble up the cliffs around Herjólfsdalur, to watch the sun set and the moon rise in brightly coloured skies.
And then some fog came rolling in from the sea, slowly engulfing the entire island. It was lying low on the horizon, just off the southeastern coast, as the full moon came rising up above Helgafell.
This is a short summary. You can find the full story & more pictures on my new website: www.wildernesscoffee-naturalhigh.com ∞ Dalalæða – Spectacular waterfalls of fog.
The magnificent display of fog that was about to ensue completely stole the show. I’ve never seen anything like it. It was incredibly beautiful…

My dalalæða pictures were published as Earth Science Picture of the Day on 28 August 2017. The article shows the picture of the fog flowing into town, and pouring like a waterfall over the edges of the cliffs.
