South Iceland Gallery I

Jokulsarlon is one of the most famous and most visited natural attractions in Iceland and turned out to be one of our favourites too. It offers the mind-boggling combination of a glacier, an iceberg lagoon, a short stretch of river carrying the icebergs to the sea and a black beach. On the beach large and small pieces of multi-hued ice wash around in the freezing surf. To avoid the crowds, we planned a visit in two instalments. On the first day we stayed until it became too dark for photos at about 9pm. A heavy mist came down just before dark, when Saul, myself and the seals that wander among the icebergs were the only living things left. Enjoy our photographs of Jokulsarlon and, of course, some South Iceland waterfalls!

    Wow – it looks almost too beautiful to be real.

    Saul – if assumption you are taking pics is correct (it’s based on equipment spend vs San Marie’s spend), the investment is showing a good return. Thanks, these are great …………

    All real, Cheryl, and not much processing possible, since we only have iPads with us!
    Gramps, statistically speaking your assumption is correct. But if you get stuck in a boring meeting this week, one of the above pictures I took with my cell phone – try to guess which one. And it’s not the one with Saul in it – I wouldn’t make it that easy!
