Tail Fin Iceberg - Jökulsárlón, Iceland

I never get tired of photographing and displaying images from this magical beach below the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.


January is probably the best month to shoot them. The sun sets and rises into the sea this time of year plus the sun only reaches about 3-5° above the horizon during midday so the sun rays never get the strength to melt and destroy the beautiful blue surface of the ice.


This one was shot last January. This interesting shape got our attention (I was there with my wife and Christian Klepp). It looked like a tail fin of a whale when it starts to dive.


The colors of the scenery where really intense and enhancing and deepening the colors of the sky with a GND filter really helped here.
