Diamond Beach Icebergs
These images are part of the Diamond Beach Iceberg series. This black sand beach is near the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon in Iceland. Icebergs break off of the glacier, float, start to melt in the lagoon, and then travel through a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean. Some of the icebergs wash up on the beach and glitter like diamonds, hence the nickname Diamond Beach.
The scene of icebergs on the beach is dazzling and I started taking close-up images of the icebergs that reveal intricate and beautiful patterns of ice, sand, and air pockets. Each image is one of a kind and that's what I love about capturing images of nature that are fleeting.
