Photographer's Note

Jökulsárlón is in South East Iceland, at the roots of Europe's biggest glacier Vatnajökull. When Vatnajokull, Europes largest glacier, began it?s retreat from the shore of south Iceland around 1950, it left behind a lagoon around 100 meters deep, filled with cold meltwater and huge icebergs that head out to the sea.

The colours and shapes of the Jokulsarlon are astounding its one of the greatest natural wonders in Iceland, travelling in this dreamlike world, dwarfed by the calving icebergs, man marvels at the majestic magnitude of nature. A august sight you can never get enough of.
