Time-Lapse Tuesday: Iceland’s Dettifoss Waterfall

January 13, 2015 Sacha Mlynek

It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see. Let’s head over to Iceland to see how the most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss, reveals itself in high-speed.

With over 24 waterfalls, Iceland’s name may be more apt for a tundra climate. But certainly there’s more going on in this enigmatic country. The powerful Dettifoss is a start to exploring this Arctic country. The rest patiently awaits.
