The Skógafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland with a width of 25 metres and a drop of 60 m. According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area, buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall. The legend continues that locals found the chest years later, but were only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. Maybe the mysterious man in the photo is walking inside trying to grab the treasure.

Location: south shore Iceland
