Jokulsarlon Ice Beach

Jokulsarion is the location for where you can find icebergs floating on the beach, a beach that has black sand. A photographers delight.

I woke very early one morning and drove the 15km to the location I had seen the day before. On arrival in the pitch black I hiked my way down the beach and started looking for an iceberg or tow that had great blue colour and would be a nice focal point for the type of image I wanted to capture.

Soon I found my first iceberg and it was in the perfect position on the beach. With the waves coming right up to the iceberg. With great colour contrast from the sky through to the iceberg and black sand beach the scene was perfect.
