Dawn Over Jokulsarlon

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 26 March 2016 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.


Time for a mood change from the previous black and white waterfall photos. This one comes from Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and I took this photo during just about the best sunrise of the entire trip.

The clichéd phrase "land of fire and ice" comes immediately to mind and I think that during moments like that, one can be forgiven for getting caught up in the general euphoria and using such well worn out terminology. It was in this moment that I understood how true this description was.

The burst of colours was just as intense as it was short lived but that morning will stay with me for a long time in my memory.

For all of you who celebrate I wish a very Happy Easter!
