Large icebergs constantly break off the edge plunging into the Glacier lagoon – Iceland’s most wonderful place. The ice floats around moved by the wind while slowly melting, crumbling, reshaping. Milky white ice transforms into clear fantasy objects.

Icebergs can even fly – at least in the reflections of the midnight sky in the still water. The lagoon is connected to the sea by a short river, which releases the icebergs into the waves of the Atlantic. For a while they seem to be happily bobbing in the surf, before drifting out to sea where the warmer sea water swallows them quickly. Some end up on the deep black lava beach melting into pieces of art. Only a few crystal clear ice bits are having a merry ending: my g&t. A truly fascinating place.
