Jokulsarlon lies in Iceland's South East - some 380km away from the capital Reykjavik. It is easily accessable by the ring road and is definitely worth spending several days there as the weather conditions change giving a whole variety of different possiblities for photography. This particular evening was clear and there were icebergs floating close to shore or already ashore. I fished this one out of the water for this image. Image was taken with a 3 stop soft and 2 stop hard GND (slight cast in the sky which I have left in). People have often commented on previous photographs about the reflection being brighter than the sky ; that is the intention with this image and several others I took while on the trip last year.
This small waterfall is a little of the usual tourist route. It can be found a few kilometers off the main road heading toward the popular tourist attractions of Geysir and Gullfoss in the Southwest of Iceland. The most striking aspect of this waterfall was the long fissure through which it runs its blue streams. The water itself feels warm due to submerged geothermal activity which gives rise to slight steaming effect the water has. In the cold of Iceland, it's definitely yet another surreal sight to savour!
Walking around the upper reaches of Zion, I couldn't help but feel I was a part of a Dr. Suess fairy tale. Every blisteringly red-on-white bump like this was adorned with its requisite individual tree.
How is it that there seems to be exactly one tree for one bump?
