guideImage captions

The ImageCaption plugin adds support for image captions:

<figure class="image">
    <img src="..." alt="...">
    <figcaption>A caption goes here...</figcaption>

By default, if the image caption is empty, the <figcaption> element is not visible to the user. You can click the image to reveal the caption field and write one. See the demo below.

# Demo

Location of the most picturesque waterfalls of Iceland

While exploring Iceland one would surely put the wild, unbridled nature on the top of the sightseeing list. But where should one start? Considering this amazing island brings together fire with ice we may expect water landscapes a nice starting point.

We have chosen a few of those that we deem the most worth visiting for their breathtaking beauty. Plan your round trip carefully, not to miss any of these natural wonders!

2. Seljalandsfoss
3. Skogafoss

5. Godafoss
