Driving along the Ring Road in Iceland is one of the most fulfilling and at the same time demanding adventures we have ever had. The south of Road 1 is especially full of jewels like this week’s “pick of the week”.

For those of us not used to the beauty of colder lands, the contrast between blue and transparent ice blocks can be striking to say the least. In Jökulsárlón the capricious shape of this ice chunk and the contrast with the dark lake shore accentuates this fact.
In order to capture both foreground and background in focus, 20 ƒ-stops and a shutter speed of 1/250 seemed appropriate. Also, as it was a dark day, an ISO of 4000 was necessary for good exposure in such a high aperture. Of course, Adobe Lightroom did a good job reducing the noise at this high ISO.
Enjoy! And don’t forget to comment if you like it!
