Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

During our trip in Iceland we were not so lucky with the light due to heavy rain during two days. Well, what should I say … one of this days were exactly here at the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, which is full of icebergs flowing to the sea from the Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier of Europe. How challenging experience it was with that bad light. But, it is as it is … at home in Switzerland I can always get back to the spots as much as I want to capture the spots with wonderful light because it is near for me, but on such a trip I have not this chance. It’s more „Take it or leave it“ he he he. So I made a lot of shots because I have no idea when it will be the next time when I have the chance to visit this area again. In my imagination I had a certain idea of the images I wanted to capture … as I saw a lot of them in the web, but here … with this light? Well, it doesn’t matter. The light was given and for nothing in the world I would miss the opportunity to make shots here at this incredible and so beautiful place no matter how the weather is. I hope you like my vision of this iconic place.
