Photographer's Note

On the fifth day of our tour of Iceland, we woke up early. Very early actually. It was 2 am when we left our bed and drove to take pictures at sunrise on Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. What crazy photographers we are ! In Iceland at that time of the year the days are endless and the nights are very shot. Well, not sure you could call this "night" : the sky is not dark, the light just decreases for one or two hours, sometimes only a few tenth of minutes, depending where you are in Iceland ! Well, non need to say it was hard to wake up so early ... But when we arrived at Jökulsárlón and saw the fantastic light there, we forgot how hard it was and juste enjoyed the scenery ! On the photo, the lake in the foreground is still in darkness, but the trop of the glacier over the lagoon is lighted by the rising sun. It was an unforgettable moment !
