glacier lagoon

Jökulsárlón at the Vatnajökull(Vatna Glacier), Southern Iceland.

 

Vatnajökull is the largest and most voluminous Icelandic glacier and the largest ice cap in Europe by volume. It has a total volume of more than 3,100 km³. It is covering more than 8 percent of the country. (8,100 km²)

These colours are real.

This is the most beautiful place on earth I have ever seen.

You can see and hear large blocks of ice breaking down into the water(icefall) and see them floating out into the open sea while they are melting.
