Iceland is a magical country, but its charms affect people in varying degrees. This young lady struck a quiet pose, intensely focused on the scene. But the crowd at the foot of the falls was busy and distracted.

From memory of a winter visit years ago, the young lady is about as near to the falls as you can get without getting drenched by the spray, it's an awe inspiring sight and a very nicely taken shot.

Probably if the truth was known... she's texting her pal and not wanting to get her smartphone wet.

I'd be the guy waiting for all the folk to leave, for my shot.

We are all going to be in such trouble.

First off, I want to apologize to the young lady should she recognize herself. We don't mean any disrespect. But alas! (pun intended) It's not a smartphone... it's an actual camera. I can't make out the name on the bag, but possibly a Nikanon. And I can't remember what was off to the left. Maybe a rainbow, as it was early morning and mist & cloud were obscuring the sun in that general direction. (This a small part of another image.)
