Brief Directions

Take the Iceland-1 instead of turning north to Jokulsarlon, turn south to the beach.

Notes

Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is on of Iceland's top tourist attractions. When the chunks of ice flow though the lagoon outlet and enter the sea, some are thrown back at the beach. Temperature and wave action make them melt in crazy ways. This can result in holes in the ice. I had to use my Canon 16-35 IS at 16mm f/16 to create this picture, with my front element just centimeters away from the ice. I had to run in as soon as the wave was receding, compose, take a few handhold pictures, then run back up the beach to keep myself and my camera dry.

Description

Wide-angle (16mm) shot of Iceland's Diamond Beach in the Jokulsarlon area. In post-processing, I noticed a slight resemblance to a classic shot in USA's Arches NP, Turret Arch though North Window.
