Jökulsárlón shooting

There are places in this world where you know, that you’ve encountered nature’s magnum opus. Well, I believe there is one for every ecosystem. Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon is the magnum opus of glaciers. You’ve seen the pictures, you know what to expect, but no matter what, you’ll end up standing in awe. I managed to go there during a sunny morning and a gloomy evening. And I’d say the gloomy evening fits the lagoon quite nicely. The blue color of the glaciers stands up.

Of course there’s not only the lagoon, there’s also a beach. Black one, as I know from Canarias. But this one is special. As the glaciers move from the lagoon towards the ocean, some of them get jumbled around and end up on the beach, looking like gemstones. Well out of this planet experience for sure. I wish I could go and spend there couple of weeks, just watching the glaciers.

This was the first time I processed the images using graphical tablet. Well, now the things I considered too complicated to do in Photoshop (clumsy mouse), are super accessible.  I think I’ll revisit some of my older shots. Let’s see how more complex photoshop magic will work.
