Diamond Ice Beach
Many of our longer trips have good opportunities for photographing the ice on the ice beach. The beach is often different in the evening compared with the morning so although it is possible to see the ice beach on a one day tour, you wont get half the opportunities that you would on a multi-day tour or workshop. Sometimes we arrive to an ice beach crowded with tourists as well as ice, you will be glad to have multiple opportunities on a Multi-day tour.
Ice beach photography
This ice beach image just caught a very brief glimpse of sunlight as the sun dropped below the cloud coverage. The black sand had been sculpted by larger chunks of glacier ice that stood heavily before. These indents in the sand created little bays as the tide came in. A good composition trick on the ice beach is to find a couple of attractive glacier ice chunks and use one to lead to the other. Usually a small piece leading to a larger piece.
