Jökulsárlón, Glacier Lagoon, ICELAND.

This shot was taken at Jökulsárlón, the glacial lagoon, in Southern Iceland in December 2018. The icebergs are carved off the main glacier and very slowly these amazing chunks of 1500-year-old ice find themselves slowly washed out to sea, where they break up into smaller pieces and wash up on the nearby beach. I spotted this isolated piece inside the lagoon itself and noticed that every ten minutes or so the water level rose by several feet creating a small tidal surge, so I framed my composition and stood in the arctic water for well over an hour waiting for the perfect moment.
