Cliff Edge is Unsecure
A warning sign at the Gullfoss waterfall, Iceland: a metaphorical view of the relationship between Man and Nature. Gullfoss (literally, Golden Falls) is a 32 m high waterfall, located in the valley of the Hvítá river. At the beginning of the of the 19th century, foreign investors were interested in exploiting Icelandic waterfalls for electrical production. A popular legend says that that a young girl, Sigríður Tómasdóttir, saved Gullfoss from exploitation, by fighting to preserve the waterfall, carrying out many long difficult journeys to the Capital, and even threatening to throw herself down.
