Iceland, Glacier Lagoon

Glacier Lagoon, Iceland
This is another image from the Glacier Lagoon in Iceland. As always in the background is the Jokulsarion Glacier. On this particular trip we spent two days exploring the Glacier and the Black Sand Beach about 300 yards behind where I stood for today's image.

A side note about Jokulsarion was part of several movies, A View to Kill, Die Another Day and Batman Begins. There a car chase scene that appeared in Die Another Day shot at this location - it was deemed the greatest movie car chase of all times - they used a Jaguar and an Aston Martin.

Image re-processed using Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6. I am enjoying the parametric quality of the development module sliders in LR4 - it allows for really good separation in the highlight and shadow areas.


  1. I just love this place. I am taking a PODAS workshop there next week with a team of great instructors. Would be nice to get those kind of clouds. Can't wait to hit the beach again. We are also going to some new and out of the way places. Watch my blog and the PODAS blog. NICE images lately. We need to go out shooting again soon.

  2. Thanks Kevin.....Doing a show at Kathleen's in September if you are around.
