A Morning On Ice

So I spent the better part of a morning in Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon during my week in Iceland, dwarfed and chilled by the massive flotilla of glacial bodies drifting past. While many visitors were busy taking the clichéd long exposures of waves lapping at chunks of ice on the beach (yawn) I wanted to capture the exquisite shapes and forms made by the melting chunks of glacial fragments. The random geometry of their swirls and angles were an exotic beauty too alluring to ignore, entire miniature worlds formed within the glistening icy architecture. Further on from the lagoon one could get closer to the Fjallsarlon Glacier, its enormity only apparent with a person or ship in the foreground to offer scale. These were all shot with the Olympus E-M5 and processed to convey the chill.

Thanks! These are wonderfully beautiful! I particularly like the ice bear head, the snake/dragon, and the kissing bears, and the glass-like frozen wave images are also amazing!
