Icebergs fall down from the Vatnajoküll, the largest glacier of Europe; they float on the glacial lake formed by the withdrawal of the glacier.
The Vatnajoküll hides somewhere in the fog...
So do the seals...

I love the pastel colours. The blue and pink work well together in contrast to the dark water. Well done!

The fog gave mistery for your picture, the inability to compare the measure of icebergs to anything, these can be small
(for coctails :-)) or huge.
Fractals... this is a special strain on this photo.

Thsi is very nice Torrent. I like the mood created by the mist, which is very icelandic in it self. I like the soft colours and the reflection is also nice. Well done.

So this is what Iceland looks like. I guess the country's name is very fitting. Are the icebergs really that blue in color? Even though the subject and the most part of the colors suggest something cold, I find the mood of the image to be rather calm and warm, this is possibly caused by the bit of pink in the fog and the amazing stillness of the water. The only thing to improve the image would be to crop off a bit of the top of the sky to follow the rule of thirds more. It seems a bit distracting that it takes up half of the frame.

It has some surrealistic hint for me - the fog hides the background and makes the shot look so extraordinary. The textures and colours of the icebergs are magnificent and their reflections in water are so beautiful! Very well seen and captured!

Beautiful light and stillness in the water. Amazing. The blue colour of the bergs looks very natural - I think there is a tendency to increase the saturation hugely in shots like these, but your look as they should. My eyes are just crying out for a little more sharpness, otherwise perfect!

Wonderful colors. It's hard to believe how still is the water on the foreground. Nice space balancing between water, ice and sky.

Très belle harmonie des couleurs sur cette photo. Il s'en dégage beaucoup de douceur et, paradoxalement, une certaine chaleur.
