The Amazing Jokulsarlon Beach where the icebergs from the lagoon float out to sea then some get washed up on the Black sand beach. This one is shaped like a turtle

Photography Tips

Very cold bring gum boots use a tripod and try not to get wet from the waves. Use a wide angle lens (16-24mm on a full frame camera will be ideal). Sunrise & sunset are ideal times to shoot the icebergs. Use a ND filter for a long exposure time (5-20 seconds) so that the water is silky smooth.
