    hold it, you used an exposure of 360 seconds to create this image? i guess those jagged pieces of ice don’t move at all? wow!! love your system of lighting!! hahahahaa excellent color and details!! congrats on your features!

  • lol cheers! Originally went up to see if I could capture the Northern Lights but it had clouded over by the time I got there so had to improvise. I believe that 90% of ice is hidden beneath the water and as it’s close to where the lagoon feeds out under a bridge to the sea it is quite shallow so the ice is stuck to the bottom allowing for the long exposures. The icebergs collect here until they melt and break up enough to be carried out to sea. It is the most amazing place for photography. Thanks again!
