Shooting in Iceland is a challenge especially when you only have a couple of days there. Both times I have been to Iceland the weather has been extremely unpredictable. Glacial lagoons were at the top of the list of things to see on this trip.
Getting out of the car at the Svinafellsjokull Glacier I was immediately excited about the light. Within minutes it started pouring. Still trying to find the shot I started looking for some of the amazing green mosses to offset the blues and browns of the glacier. After scrambling on slick cliffy rocks I found my spot and waited for the light. I got lucky and diffused sunlight broke through the clouds and rain making the scene glow.
As soon as I saw the scene I knew I wanted to a shot with the rocks, the ice, and the moss that make Iceland, Iceland.
