Glacier river lagoon, known as Jökulsárlón spanning the flatland between the nose of Breiđamerkurjökull glacier and the sea formed after 1940 when the glacier began with fast shrinking. Many "small" ice cubes calved from the front of the glacier and consequently float around the lake. But some of them are large enough to actually not float, but just sit on the lagoon bottom.
The colour that is observed when sun light is penetrating through the pure ice blocks is sparkingly blue and magical indeed.

Looking at your recent images I would say your favorite color is blue!
This is impressive, the colour of the ice is fascinating.
I feel the left side crop is a bit too tight - would be nice to see a bit more of the surroundings.

Impressive chunk of ice. nice colors. I wonder what's near by this big ice cube. It would also be nice to have something for perspective.

Lovely one! Great great blue tones inside the glacial ice.
I love the gradual changes inside it, nice patterns, also like the tiny highlights. Sharpness is top. Sky is fine too.
I agree with shirgold on the surroundings, a less tight crop or framing would have been a bit nicer. Maybe a panorama!

The sparkling blue of the iceberg surreal.
