Jokulsarlon Icebergs Sunrise 2

Posted By Jon Cornforth

Jokulsarlon Icebergs Sunrise 2, Skaftafell National Park, Iceland

During my trip to Iceland, I visited the spectacular Jokulsarlon 5 different nights over 2 weeks hoping to photograph an epic midnight sunset.  On the night that I finally created this image, the magic light had threatened to overwhelm the clouds for several hours.  I created my nicest stranded icebergs on the beach image, Jokulsarlon Beach Sunset 2, at 12:45am.  I don’t remember how I occupied my time for the next hour, but by 2:45am I was set up and ready to photograph the sunrise light when it briefly radiated underneath the heavy clouds and illuminated the mountains above the iceberg choked lagoon.
