Theo Bosboom - Beached iceblock

If you have great light on a great location, it is not difficult to make nice pictures. The beach near the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon on Iceland is such a location. It is a magical place, different every day and interesting in every season and in every type of weather. I have visited the place many times, but I never had such a beautiful sunrise as this morning in september. I put my tripod as low as possible to emphasize the size of the iceblock, to hide the sun behind it and to include as much sky as possible. I waited for waves rolling back, so that the sky was reflected on the wet sand. In the meantime I tried to prevent that my camera (and I) would be caught by a big wave, as the ocean can be pretty rough out there.

Location: Iceland, Jokulsarlon
