Jökulsárlón, Iceland

Newer Older

Literally staring in awe, mouth open. One of the most memorable things I saw in Iceland were the glacier lakes from Jökullsárlón to Fjallsárlón. Just wonderful, quite mediative.

After the initial round of pictures is done, I focus on various subjects. The first glacier lake picture showed Fjallsárlón, this one is Jökulsárlón, which is most famous one, and with up to 248 m the deepest lake in Iceland. The different colours of the ice come from large ice crystals (blue) or volcanic ash (black), next to the normal ice (I'll let you guess the colour :)).

The picture was taken with the Nikkor 16-85mm/3.5-5.6G VR at 85 mm and f8 for optimum sharpness. I then did a crop for a panoramic view.

If you are interested, feel free to check out my whole Iceland set at my homepage, or rather the current state it is in. My favorites from there will get here onto flickr. Yes, I take proposals. :)
