It’s a glacial lake in Iceland, some 400km east of Reykjavik. The drive alone features volcanic beaches, swamps, mountains, grasslands, moss-covered boulders, occasional snow, icecaps and glaciers. That somehow, Iceland can top EVEN THAT and bring you an iceberg lagoon is pretty staggering.

It doubled for Siberia in the film ‘Tomb Raider’ (2001) and was also the scene of a race between a jet-powered kayak and Richard Hammond driving some kind of four-wheel drive vehicle on the show Top Gear.

And even though the weather wasn’t pure blue sky like I might have wanted, the sense of vastness, of even clouds seemingly unable to resist being drawn into the marvel, is pretty hard to resist

Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened. (Placeholder bio – remember to replace).

    Spectacular location, you’ve captured it really well. I remember that Richard Hammond race on Top Gear, funnily enough this reminds me of a Top gear shot as they often use strong polarisers to get a similar effect on the sky.
