Jokulsarlon Ice Beach Photo

Early morning on the glacier Ice Beach at Jokulsarlon. In the middle of Winter the sun rises close to 11 am. In good conditions, there is pre-dawn light for a couple of hours before the sunrise.

These glacier ice jewels were sat on soft, velvety sand. The clouds in the sky were opening to form a window for the pre-dawn light. The blue of the ice took on colours of the sky as they reflected & refracted the light.
