14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Serendipity

My friends and I were travelling around Iceland for a while. In our road trip, we were basically following all touristic spots from our guide map. At this point, we found a narrow grave road and decided to drive into that unknown place. It was the best decision...we found this amazing view of the most important glacier of Europe. That blue ice iceberg was so blue that I did not believe at the first glance - I had to have that shot. However, it started pouring rain. It was my first time shooting with a DSRL and I had some concerning about the relationship between camera gears and rain. At the end, everything went well!
