Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Jokulsarlon is a large glacier lagoon in the south east of Iceland, on the edge of the Vatnajokull National Park. The lake formed when the glacier started to recede from the coast and has grown four times larger in the past forty years. It is more than 248 metres deep and regularly releases small icebergs into the Atlantic Ocean.

This is a long exposure of just over four minutes which has smoothed out the clouds and the gentle ripples on the water. I decided not to completely correct the colour cast from the ND filters as I like the surreal feel that it gives the image.
