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.
Icebergs in the glacier lagoonPanorama photo If you look close you can see small blue parts in the clouds - I bet this icebergs would look even better with the help of some sunlight. But we had to wait.
Between the icebergsPeople doing a boat trip in the Jökulsárlón lagoon As a photographer it never gets boring. We took a walk along the lagoon and watched the people in the boats having fun on their tours.
Amazing natureBarnacle geese in the cold water These geese were really funny. 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:
Black beach and cool blue iceAmazing seascape in Iceland Icebergs and smaller pieces of cool blue or white ice lying on a black beach, the waves of the ocean crashing on the shore: every photographers paradise.
"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:

So I devoted a whole blogpost just for the Jökulsárlón lagoon because I love this scenery so much. What do you think? Too much ice? Or do you like it? Drop me a comment below!
