Glacier ice at Jokulsarlon
Blue ice at Jokulsarlon’s crystal beach which looks like a good night Gracie, but actually it is a good morning Gracie. This Winter photo was taken on the ice beach at Jokulsarlon on a photo tour at Sunrise. The blue of the glacier ice works well against the black sand and glowing sky. Winter Sunrise occurs out to sea in South Iceland, so we are often greeted with a colourful back drop to the Glacier ice.
Witness more Ice and Auroras on a Photography Workshops with Tony Prower. We practice many landscape techniques for composing, focusing and exposing glacier ice. The most interesting approach is a long exposure technique called the Magic Cloth Technique. These 5 day workshops include 3 – 4 attempts to photograph the Sunrise at Jokulsarlon.
Although the ice beach can be included on a Jokulsarlon Day tour, we strongly advise a 2 or 3 days on a Long tour.
“Photograph: a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art.”

Vatnajokull glacier in Southeast Iceland is the largest glacier in Europe.
Facts about glaciers
Glaciers are massive pieces of ice that ‘flow’ like slow rivers. They evolve over hundreds of years where snow compacts & turns into ice.
