November 2014 Viewer's ChoiceHraunfossar is a spectacular 3,000 ft (900 m) wide waterfall in western Iceland. The falls are part of the Hallmundarhraun lava field that originated over 1,000 years ago and now lie under the Langjokull glacier, the second largest icecap in Iceland. Underground streams from glacial melt emerge at the falls. The waterfall was designated a national monument in 1987. Photo taken on October 19, 2014. [Revised June 2017]
