Fire & Ice

Seeing as Winter is rapidly approaching I thought I'd post this one up from earlier in the year, it's looking increasingly unlikely I'll be going to Iceland in the Winter again this coming year with everything that's currently going on, I can't even get out to travel and shoot much in this Country let alone abroad until things change... but I guess most of us are in the same boat for now...

 

This was shot at sunrise at Jokusarlon on the South East Coast of Iceland, there was a tinny little window of opportunity where the sun was going to be visible due to the very heavy clouds, so when it popped it's head over the horizon you had to be ready...

 

The ice to the rear is acting as a great light splitter, projecting the warm light towards the main Ice Berg as if it was a red carpet (well OK orange....) for it's arrival onto the black sands.

 

Even though it was this year, this seems like an absolute age away now!
