Ice breaker

When my wife and I arrived at the Jökulsárlón - Glacier Lagoon around 2am it was overcast with a slight drizzle of rain, not the picture book conditions I have seen on so many images.

While my wife decided to get some sleep in the campervan, I donned by waders and rain jacket and started walking along the black sand beach in search for icebergs. I had to walk quite a while to finally found some. Nearby was a other photographer couple who were busy with doing some selfies with their cameras and tripods in the surf.

Despite telling them to be wary of the waves and the then moving iceblocks they didn't really listen and for the photographer male it ended up with a snapped tripod leg - told you to be careful!!

Otherwise it's a fantastic place to spent your time! Some 3 hours later I made it for some sleep in the campervan!
