Diamond Beach Iceland

Contre Jour Ice

Home » Prints » Ice Prints » Contre Jour Ice

This gem of crystal ice on the glacier ice beach was backlit by the rising sun. The crystal ice blocks the sun, and only a diffuse glow gets through. This powerful backlighting brings out the textures running through the glacier ice.

My choice of ice was careful. I chose this ice because it was just a few feet into the sea so larger waves could wash in front of it. This was important to capture the reflection of the glowing glacier ice.

Glacier Ice Beach

The ice beach is a dynamic, natural location. Glacier ice shaped by wind, sun, ocean & rain creates ice sculptures that are always unique. The challenge for photographers is to hunt for the nicer ice. The crystal ice in this photo was important for the Contre Jour effect.

Photo Art

Icelandic photo art looks amazing hanging on the wall as a print. I chose the materials to present the vibrant colours and dramatic contrasts in my photography. Iceland nature photography wall art is a great way to bring the beauty of the country into your home or office. Not only is it visually stunning, but it is also a great conversation starter and adds a unique touch to any room. If you are looking to add a touch of Iceland to your home or office, nature photography wall art is a great way to do it.
