Jökulsárlón (lit. "Glacier Lagoon") is the largest glacier lagoon or lake in Iceland. Situated in south eastern Iceland, at the head of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier branching from the Vatnajökull, between Skaftafell National Park and Höfn, it evolved into a lagoon after the glacier started receding from the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. The lake has grown since then at varying rates because of melting of the Icelandic glaciers.

 

I guess every and each landscape photographer is dreaming of capturing Jökulsárlón - Glacier Lagoon at least once in his/hers life and of course we all dream about perfect conditions... and I call myself very lucky to have experienced several stunning sunsets over this amazing place !!
