Jokulsarion Glacier Lagoon

We had to race to make it to the amphibian boat tour Jokulsarion Glacier Lagoon (enjoy the videos in this link). I didn’t get dramatic skies to photograph behind the glaciers on July 15 but I think the gray is more chilling. I briefly saw a seal’s head, Arctic Terns flying by with fish, and an Arctic Skua dashed by. These photos are true to life. The blue ice is natural.

    Wow! Powerful stuff! A world of it’s own…the glaciers seem like they have their own community and almost look like animals in a few of the photos! I guess these glacier formations are a lot less than they would be without global warming…

    Holy cow! These are fantastic photos, Sherry. The moody, chilly scenes are great, I loved seeing the arctic terns, and that gorgeous blue ice is so richly colored. Looks like you had a great trip. yay.

    I first saw such blue ice in Alaska’s Glacier Bay. It’s beautiful.

      They are a startling blue. The sky was gray so the blue really stood out.
