Ice on beach near the much-photographed Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon.
Just a moment before getting wet feet and nearly a very wet camera!

Great shot! I like the close in view of the ice, even allowing us to see the crystals, while you also have the wave rushing in, giving it a sense of action. Good balance between the beach, the sea and the sky too. Nicely done!

Very dynamic picture. You have pressed the shutter in the right moment, when the wave is reaching the piece of glass.

Hi John, absolutely outstanding photo - great position of the horizon, of the three pieces of snow/ice, the black sand, the cold blue - very well done!

The motion of the water is almost tangible here. Great point of view and excellent composition with.

Woohow, I;m just stunned, that ice is so magical even looks like it came from another place, a real jewel. Great contrast between the still ice and the moving water, beautiful piece.

This is absolutely breathtaking. I love the colors, the idea. It's great POV.

I can feel the motion of the water here - I instantly pulled away from my screen seeing the wave coming! :-)
Sharp good details, a perfect composition and very good colors!

You got the timing right. The slow shutter speed has done its magic.

Wonderful shot John. This is going to my favourites. You caught the motion very well and still have the FG in focus. Well done.

great job, great perspective, love those pieces of ice and the way you froze the water! A creative and different view of Jökulsárlón, an almost b/w but for the bits of blue. Glad you saved your camera:-)
thub69 (403) 2007-12-09 6:51
very beautiful composition.
I like much the cold colors..
Speed is very well controlled.

Great capture. Of course I was there but I didn't managed to get that one.
Cheers from Antibes.

hai una galleria piena di gioelli ! Complimenti ! Questa mi piace moltissimo, ma e´duro scegliere.
abulafia (4900) 2007-12-18 1:48
I wonder why i didn't see this one earlier?
Great idea, and a bit unusual, nice to use the ice as subjects, and i like all the layers of mostly white and blue colors.
It looks really good, only it would have been perfect with the water completely freezed instead, but i guess you choose the F22 to get a longer exposure, even though i tend to think the opposite could have been even better.

l'Islanda,terra di caldo e freddo,ti avra'
dato molta soddisfazione non solo per quanto
concerne la fotografia.Mi piace questo primo
piano della sabbia nera che sta per essere travolta dalla fredda onda del mare.
Un POV che enfatizza il paesaggio riuscendo a coprire l'orizzonte tra cielo e mare,
decisamente un ottima foto.
buona serata sERGIO

ciao John, ho appena scoperto le tue foto e sei finito dritto nei mie preferiti!
bellissima questo tuo scatto, con un punto di vista cosě basso, e la composizione asimmetrica
a presto, Carla

I have revisited your Island gallery and i must apreciate some of your pictures.
Beautiful composition, very dinamic and cold picture and original "paspartou".
These days i am only seeing Iceland pictures and you have a lot of good images from this island.
Thanks for sharing

Just great! Overally excellent shot! I find both the exposure and the composition very well chosen.
Tukan-T5 (4317) 2010-02-04 6:23
fantastic composition with extra low POV.
Three peace of ice like three islands and what a difference among it.
Good idea very well done.
