Jokulsarlon by AndyMumford Jokulsarlon by AndyMumford
Sunset at the lagoon of Jokulsarlon. The huge Vatnajökull glacier (the biggest icecap outside of the two poles) is in the background, and a branch of it comes down the valley here to the lagoon where icebergs calve off, float across the lagoon, and then eventually out to sea.
It's an amazing amazing place, I've never seen anything like it in my life. The sound of the ice creaking is astonishing.
The ice here is 1000 years old, apparently.

Stunning, I need to return here. I went some years ago with a girlfriend and it was the most magical place I've been.....

Great image, great place. I hope that you won't have the same problem as I had (and still have): Already (before leaving) thinking when it will be possible to come back! :D

Stunning image, so beautiful.

I was there in 2009, we got to eat some of the 1000 year old ice, the weather wasn't that good though.
