January 27, 2020 — Jökulsárlón, South Coast, Iceland Only when the last post actually published did I realize it might be just a bit on the bleak, somber side. That’s not how I want to leave Iceland, nor is it the parting thought of Iceland that I want to leave for you. Here’s something a bit more on the bright side. Now we’ll move on… (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR. RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab […]

January 26, 2020 — Reynisfjara (Black Sand) Beach, Iceland We’ve been home since the second of February. There has been enough time to sift through the bounty and select the best and you’ve seen quite a bit.

January 28, 2020 — Diamond Beach, South Coast, Iceland About a half a mile from where the photo in the last post was taken, the lagoon empties into the North Atlantic. Miniature bergy-bits flow out and then are washed back ashore by the tide and the surf. There they sit, shining on the beach awaiting their inevitable trip back into the sea. They look like diamonds.

January 27, 2020 — Jökulsárlón, South Coast, Iceland When you think of a lagoon, don’t you think of white sand, blue water, and palm trees? This is different: black sand, blue water, and icebergs. The ’bergs have been shed by one of the largest glaciers in Iceland. Things happen fast in Iceland: This lagoon didn’t exist sixty years ago and in the foreseeable future, it’ll be a fjord.
