Photographer's Note

The famous glacier lagoon at Jökusarlon in southern Iceland is joined to the sea by Iceland's shortest river. After a mere few hundred meters the glacier lagoon is emptying itself in the sea and carries the icebergs with it, where the often get stranded at the black sand beach there.
It is best to visit the lagoon and the beach early morning as the closest hotel is 12km away in Hali (country hotel, farm with own fishery and lamb and poets museum at once) and the tour buses from Reykjavik arrive only around noon when the lagoon and the beach is crowded with tourists and photographers with tripods. Here we where at 07.30am at the beach before heading back towards Reykjavik later in the day.
