With the ice sheet over Jökulsárlón's water constantly shifting and the difference in distance between the mountain and the foreground, I had to stack 2 images for this shot.
The cracked ice, created by the forces of the moving lagoon water, had managed somehow to align itself in such a way that the sunrise's light on the mountain reflected off it.
If you'd like to experience and shoot these amazing sceneries, along with many other incredible icy landscapes, and do so under my dedicated guidance, you're welcome to join my upcoming 'Land of Ice' Iceland winter workshop
taking place January 2013. The workshop is co-guided by renowned local Icelandic mountaineer and pro photographer Skarphedinn Thrainsson, and it will bring you to the most amazing locations for landscape photography in south Iceland. Please click the link for more details, and contact me with any questions about the workshop.
