Picture for the day: Dettifoss

The Dettifoss in Iceland (photo above by Tim Bekaert) is reputed to be Europe’s most powerful waterfall. It is 45 metres high (slightly less than Niagara Falls), 100 metres wide, and has a peak water flow of 600 cubic metres per second (one fifth that of Niagara Falls), although the average flow is only 193 cubic metres per second.
