Outdoor Photographer "Behind The Shot" Feature
I recently wrote an article for Outdoor Photographer Magazine's Behind The Shot about my experience photographing in Iceland. The piece is a behind the scenes look at how I created "Blue Ice, Black Sand," a photograph of the waves crashing over the icebergs at Jökulsárlón beach. My story and photo will be printed in the May Landscape issue of the magazine! A big thank you to OPM for the feature!
Here is an excerpt:
"Of all of the amazing activities and scenery that Iceland has to offer, one of my favorite places to explore is the Jökulsárlón glacial lake and nearby beach of black sand. Located at the foot of Vatnajökull National Park, it’s here that huge icebergs calve from the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier into the lake. These icebergs are then carried by the tide out to the Atlantic Ocean where most are just dragged right back to shore by the waves. This phenomenon results in the black sandy beach being covered in hundreds to thousands of ice chunks of varying size, shape and color. From bright blue to pure milky white, each iceberg is unique. Some of the ice is even still speckled with rich dark volcanic ash from ancient eruptions."
