The Ice Diamonds of Breiðamerkursandur

May 15, 2018

Beautiful ice blocks, like diamonds, in the sun sparkle on the black beach Breiðamerkursandur and transform it into a glowing field of ice. The whole beach is covered with chunks of ice which brings up a really mysterious atmosphere.

Very nice image. Is that some serious Orton Effect, or actual sea mist causing that glow?
