12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Crushed ice

Jokulsarlon beach in Iceland is about the only place on this earth where icebergs are stranding on a black sand beach. With the global warming and the shrinkage of the glaciers in Iceland one can only wonder for how long. I tried to capture the cold, the force of the sea and the magnificent beauty of this place.
