  Skaftafell National Park, Iceland

Skaftafell area used to be known as 'Oraefi', meaning Wasteland; It was during the Oraefi eruptions in about 1362.
It took hundred of years when the vegetations came back, hence being preserved as we can see the area now...
Now, I have to go down a cliff to reach Svartifoss waterfall...It's easy descending down but remember, there's no safety barriers; Just take extra precautions...
