Behemoth Stranded

One of my own personal favourites... Experience shows that these arent necessarily popular out there, but hey....

The black beach at Jokulsarlon is one of those locations that "everyone" has in their portfolio. Its the opposite of what i strive for in my photography. Taking pictures that thousands of others have taken...thats just not what i look for in my photography. But having said that, the beach at Jokulsarlon is pretty much one of the coolest places on the surface of the earth... And i think i left it with a few pretty damn cool shots.

This huge chunk of ice was one that i worked with for a while. The mindblowing textures and tones was beyond fascinating. It reminded me of some kind of monster, hence the title:

" behemoth is a beast mentioned in Job 40:15–24. Suggested identities range from dinosaur to crocodile to a mythological creature."

I ended up using a shutterspeed that gave life to the space surrounding the ice, trying to make the whole image dynamic and "alive".
