New waterfalls are forming constantly in these warmer months, whilst the larger, more renowned falls are thriving.
Tourists from all around the globe visit these enormous water chutes to marvel at their sheer scale and the sporadic rainbows refracting in the water mist.
It’s no wonder that these dramatic landscapes of Iceland are the backdrop for numerous fantasy films and TV shows, such as Prometheus and Game of Thrones.
Photographer Russell Pearson travelled around Iceland, snapping five of the major waterfalls in September 2016.
He said: “The weather was amazing for this time of year, during the day it was 14 degrees, and at night around 6 degrees.
“The water on the other hand was freezing cold, coming straight from the glacier located above.”
One of those Russell visited was Skogafoss, one of Iceland's biggest and most famous waterfalls. With a width of 25m and a drop of 60m, the large amount of water spray causes a single or double rainbow on a sunny day.
The photographer also visited Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall with a large inner cave, accessible to visitors.
Russell said: “The Seljalandsfoss is the only one which you actually can go under, there is a path and you can get some great shots from behind the falls.”
Despite the flourishing water currently running through lush, green pastures, in months to come this landscape will transform into a white wonderland.
