Icebergs on the Beach

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 19 December 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This is the final photo from a series that I took in Jökulsarlón in south Iceland where ice breaking off a glacier is washed up on the regions black volcanic sand beaches.

This shot was a long exposure which has given the image a semi-abstract feel which I really liked.

NIKON D800 607/10 second F/9.0 ISO 100 35 mm (35mm equiv.)

Icebergs are so smooth that you almost see large cotton balls. It's beautiful
