These are images from a whole day at Jökulsárlón, where icebergs drift from a glacier through a lagoon to the nearby sea.  The first seven are at the lagoon.

The glacier Breiδamerkurjökull looms above the lagoon.

Now I have moved to the coast at the black sand beach near where the lagoon empties to the sea.

For these last ones I am back again at the lagoon.

These boats contain Martin Bailey’s group heading out to the edge of the glacier to find images.

I enquired at the booking office whether I could have a boat ride as well but I needed to have booked in advance..

      That’s unfortunate. I’m using a utility too called JpegMini that automatically works out the smallest size images can be without loss of quality (It’s expensive but I got it on special).

      It may be because this post has 29 images which is the largest number of images I’ve ever included in a single post. The next post in two days time has 19 images and the one after that 11.

    Wonderful images and I love that you have included the glacier itself. I’ve seen many shots of the icebergs and pieces on the black sand beach but never the glacier itself. It is magnificent!
