Glacier Lagoon, Jokulsarlon Glacier, Iceland
The Story of "Land of Fire & Ice"
After 4 days of cloud, we received our first real sunset at the Glacier Lagoon in Jokulsarlon, Iceland. The brilliant colors and distant mountains provided the perfect compliment to the fractured chunks of iceberg that were stacking up on shore.
This was a big day for us, as the trip had so far been brutal. Our bags had not arrived, we had already lost a day to a winter storm, and we had yet to see the sky, let alone the aurora we had come for. But finally, the sun found an escape from the clouds and the landscape transformed, creating the most beautiful scene I had encountered so far in Iceland.
