Black, White & Blue - Jökulsárlón

Several weeks ago I shared this image taken at Jökulsárlón, the glacial lagoon in Iceland. This image was taken nearby at the black sand beach just downstream from the lagoon. Chunks of ice regularly wash ashore here after floating out to sea.

On this particular morning, the fog was so thick that it created a very dreamlike scene. There was literally no color in the sky…it was just white in every direction. In fact, the only color to be found was in this chunk blue ice. You can’t tell from the photo, but this piece of ice is about the size of a SUV. There were several smaller pieces scattered on the beach, but this one immediately captured my attention and was begging to be photographed.

White skies, black sand and blue ice…it was co cool (pun intended) to be here with this unique backdrop.
