Entry Description

An ancient iceberg from the Jokulsarlon Glacier washes up on the black sand shores of southern Iceland. The picture taken during a cyclonic spring time storm, and the long shutter speed, conveys the churning chaos that surrounds the gracefully melting ice. These floating ice bergs are now melting faster than ever due to climate change, and may, before too long be a thing of the past in this region.
