Ice Pool

Diamond ice beach

I took this nature photo on the shores of the diamond beach near Jokulsarlon.

At the Jökulsárlón Glacier Diamond Beach, the winter sunrise can be so colourful. When there is a colourful sky, I always study the more crystal ice for high quality reflections and refraction of the colourful light.

On this morning, I found these two icebergs which had washed up together on the beach. The right hand one was a really pure glacier ice and it was catching all the colours of the Arctic sky. The other piece of ice was also crystal but with a blue undertone. Between these icebergs was a little pool of water which was also reflecting the sunrise colours as well as the icebergs. I like the way these glacier icebergs interact with the natural light. The blue ice reflects the warm sunlight and the crystal ice allows the red to shine through.

Joklsarlon ice beach yields so much natural beauty – yet it is also fleeting and ephemeral. This makes Natural Photography so challenging, yet we can be rewarded with unique Glacier Landscape Photos.
