At the crack of dawn, we were at one of Iceland's most incredible locations - Jökulsárlón, literally- glacier lagoon. I have never seen such an amazing place, and by luck, it was a clear morning, allowing the dormant volcano of Öræfajökull to recieve a wonderful alpine glow under the white moon.
This image was the one of the first I shot there, and the magical light wasn't at its peak yet. But the surreal combination of blue and pink is still embedded deep in my mind.
A lineup of beautiful glaciers was right on the lagoon's bank, as if they had decided to join us in watching the magic unravel.

If you'd like to experience and shoot this magical location, among many other incredible icy sceneries, you're welcome to join my upcoming 'Land of Ice' Iceland winter workshop taking place January 2013. The workshop is co-guided by renowned local Icelandic mountaineer and pro photographer Skarphedinn Thrainsson, and it will bring you to the most amazing locations for landscape photography in south Iceland.
