Blue Hour At The Lagoon

    Newer Older

    This is taken just before sundown on the shores of Jökulsárlón glacial lake near the south end of the Vatnajökull glacier off of Rt. 1 in the south of Iceland.

    I wanted to capture the stillness of the water in order to get some reflections of the massive pieces of ice floating around but on this day, the winds were in the vicinity of 20-30 miles per hour so I figured I'd concentrate on the contrast of the deep blue of the ice and changing colors in the sky.

    Taken with 1.5 stop ND filter to lengthen exposure.

    Let me know what you think.
