Heike Odermatt - Special light


The glacier lagoon Jokulsarlon in Iceland is photographed so much, but it is still a amazing place. So I spended some evenings during the blue hour to photograph the ice on the beach and in the lagoon. At this evening for a short moment the sun came out and got this special light to the ice and the sea.

    A great picture :)
    It seems very similar to Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean with the black sand and the mountain's shape ! Ice excepted ;)
    Best wishes for 2012
