jökulsárlón glacier *iceland*

7 March 2014

On our 3rd morning we woke to heavy cloud cover – but you know I was still happy! This region was very quiet when we visited in off-season autumn, so we felt like the only people in this spectacular landscape, and often we actually were. We started at sunrise on the beach delicately avoiding the ice sculptures as though works of art, and then wandered under the bridge to the lagoon, both of us snapping away on our cameras. (Love this photo of us huddled over one together wearing several layers and gore-tex). Glacial ice on a beach. Black volcanic sand. Vivid blues. Seals floating without a care. Ice snapping and splashing into the water. Somebody pinch us!

    ooh lovely images of Jokulsarlon! Iceland has been on my travel list for the longest time and I can’t wait to see the lovely blue icebergs. Phenomenal pictures! Looking forward to more posts on Iceland :)

    Lucent, this second set of photos is stunning, both individually and in contrast to the bright sunny ones in your previous post. I love the one of the two of you huddled together, and the joy in your voice, as you write about this incredible experience. Looking forward to the next installment.

    What an amazing trip. You have captured such interesting photos. That blue in the ice and water make my heart skip a beat. I laugh at the shopping cart and bear. Thank you for sharing. Best, Kim

    Stunning! (and very professional – are you professionally trained in photgraphy?) And I’d like to know more about the art!

    All the incredible shades of nature’s blue. How amazing.
    By the way, was it chilly? :)

    Wow this was more of the landscape I was expecting from your trip to Iceland. It does look cold and the ice looks so blue.
