Slipping away

Icebergs floating in jokulsarlon Ice Lagoon, Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland.

Cold as Ice

A mini iceberg lies on the black volcanic sands of Jokulsarlon beach in Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland, The berg will have calved from the glacier that feeds into Jokulsarlon ice lagoon a short distance away having been born from snow that fell hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years ago. It then floated slowly through the lagoon towards the outfall river and finally out into the sea where it washed up onto the shore. The icebergs appear in two shades: milky white or bright blue like this one, dependent on the air trapped within the ice.
