I have spend many morning taking landscape photographs on the Glacier Ice Beach, but this was the worst weather I had seen at this beach. The terrific winds were blasting sand at the backs of our necks as we struggled with our cameras. We lasted long enough to get about 3 photos each. This photograph was a surprise. I had set the shutter for a 10 second Magic Cloth exposure, but just 2 seconds into the exposure that wave came racing to the shore. All I could do was cover up the lens for the rest of the exposure and make a hasty retreat. This decapitated, long exposure resulted in a very workable image. I was just grateful that all the right chunks of glacier ice were in focus.
The day of this horrendous storm just happened to be 14th February. This is the day when lovers celebrate their love. Therefore, this photograph from the glacier ice beach is dedicated to lovers everywhere. Love must be in the air!!
A beautiful Summer morning at Jokulsarlon with some icebergs reflecting in the glacier lagoon.
This South Iceland spot can be very good for Northern lights because there is a possibility of capturing a reflection of the Aurora in the landscape.
A slow shutter can be achieved with a dark filter (often called an ND filter), or by taking the photograph in low light.
