Jokulsarlon Morning Rainbow - Iceland by 

Morning rainbow, Jokulsarlon, Iceland

Sri Lanka

Jokulsarlon is a glacial lake that meets the sea in Iceland. One of the most beautiful places i have been on our little planet Earth. The tragedy is that this beautiful photo would not be possible without global warming. When in a cafe at a petrol station i saw a postcard of Jokulsarlon. One single large iceberg floating in the centre. As you can see now the lake is full.

Note: The size if this work was increased using Photoshop CS2.
Best size being around the 50cm wide.

    Wonderful photo! I was fortunate enough to see a glacier on the equator (Mt Kenya) – something my children will never see.

    the captured rainbow frames the image – elevates it above and beyond. We really need to get the enlarge thing happening so we can see these images in widescreen.

    Such a striking landscape and the rainbow tops off proceedings very well. A brilliantly composed image.

    Don’t know how I missed this one Adrian. A very beautiful mix of subtle hues and the contrast of the rainbow. Love the wide format – really suits this well. Shame it’s so bitter-sweet as per your description.

    Just a beautiful picture! Nice description to go with it as well, I sure hope there will be a time when there is once again a single iceberg there

    I’ve glanced at the thumb-view a few times … now I have opened it, I’ve finally noticed the rainbow!
    That must have been a lot of fun to capture. I bet you took a LOT of photographs on that assignment!
