Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon Iceland Fine Art Prints

Iceland is full of amazing landscapes and nature but I have to say the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon was one of the absolute highlights of my photo tour. When we arrived at this magical place the weather was not very good. No rain but a gray, cloudy sky.

They rested on the beach of the lagoon and went into the water when I was arriving. They watched what I was doing and immediately went back to their place on the beach when I walked away a few steps. We played this game several times :-)

Now is this a wonderful day or not? The weather can change very fast in Iceland and so we had an hour filled with wonderful sunshine and blue sky.

If you visit this beautiful place please be sure to walk the short distance from the lagoon ot the ocean and the black beach. Because this is where the magic starts:

"I will be back in the car in about 20 minutes" I told my wife before rushing to the beach. When I came back some hours later (sorry honey) she was sleeping deeply. I even asked if I am allowed to play here again tomorrow - together with all the other photograpers. She smiled and said yes.

See yourself how amazing this place looks:

Wonderful pictures! :) Funny with the geese. I had Geese following me there (in the water) like a dog on a leash. Very funny. Here are some more facts about Jökulsárlón:
