19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The Ice Lagoon of Jökulsárlón

The Ice Lagoon of Jökulsárlón, located on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park in Iceland, is an extraordinary natural wonder. Taken on the overcast day of June 28, 2021, while completing the ring road around Iceland, I composed this reflecting image of the ever-changing white, blue, and black chunks of ice. Some of the icebergs pictured here are over 1,000 years in the making.
