Iceland – Shades of White

Wandering the shores of the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lagoon in Iceland rates in my top ten photographic life experiences. The sheer number of possible photographs in this remarkable location make even an extended stay seem just way too short for the keen landscape photographer. No matter what the weather or lens there are wonderful photographs to be made at the lagoon. This photograph was shot looking directly at the carving face of the Vatnajokull glacier  as an arctic fog and mist rolled down the glacial tongue from the slopes above. There is a wonderful suppleness and velvety feel to the fog as it spills down the rolling wave like formations of the glacier. This photograph was very tough to print with its many white-on-white subtle tonal variations; but the end result really works for me and is a photograph that at least for me captures the essence of the Vatnajokull glacier. A higher resolution version of this photograph is on my Portfolio website at www.jholko.com.
