Ice Cubes - Jökulsárlón, Iceland

Jökulsárlón is the best known and the largest of a number of glacial lakes in Iceland. It is situated at the south end of the glacier Vatnajökull between Skaftafell National Park and Höfn. Appearing first only in 1934-1935, the lake grew from 7.9 km² in 1975 to at least 18 km² today because of heavy melting of the Icelandic glaciers. Approaching a depth of 200 m, Jökulsárlón is now probably the second deepest lake in Iceland.

 

I went on a trip with Dylan and Marianne last weekend. Check out some of their really good shots from a 5 week trip to Iceland: www.everlookphotography.com/Iceland/Iceland-2010/

 

I love to shoot those the small icebergs that float down the short Jökulsá á Breiðarmerkursandi river. The get stranded on the black lava sand beach. The contrast between the lava sand and icebergs at twilight is very interesting to shoot.
