ICELAND DISPATCH #8 – ICEBERG ALLEY

We are continuing to travel East along the coast today and will end the day in the town of Egilsstadir, about 350km East of Skaflafell where we have been photographing for the last couple of days. Along the way we plan to photograph the landscape south of Vatnajokull glacier, mountains and the beach by Stafness and the fjords to the East. We may also head up to Mount Snaefell or photograph along the Lagarfljot River, weather permitting. We will also make one more stop at the black sand beach near the Jokulsarlon lagoon to see if any fresh ice has been washed up onto the beach.

Last night we went back to the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon to photograph the icebergs in soft overcast evening light. The lagoon is a very magical, peaceful and surreal place. It is very easy to spend hours wandering the shore picking out compositions amongst the icebergs.
