Iceland - Hraunfossar



June 2011

Hraunfossar is a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 meters out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. The waterfalls pour into the Hvítá river from ledges of less porous rock in the lava. The name hraun comes from the Icelandic word for lava.
Hraunfossar est une série de chutes d'eau formées de petites courants d'eau s'écoulant sur une distance de 900 mètres hors du Hallmundarhraun, un champ de lave qui a coulé depuis une éruption de l'un des volcans se trouvant sous la glacier Langjökull. Les chutes d'eau tombent dans la rivière Hvítá depuis des cavités situées dans la roche poreuse. Hraun signifie lave en Islandais. comes from the Icelandic word for lava.
