Monochrome Madness 23

600_3740-ecdb_wMy contribution to Leanne Coles Monochrome Madness for this week is taken from my upcoming series on Iceland again, although I first picked another photo for this week. (click on the photo to see it enlarged).

Here you can see the glacier lake Jökulsárlón. In the background you can see the glacier Breiðamerkursandi. Every now and then huge ice blocks breaks apart from the glacier and fall into the lake. Slowly the ice blocks are pulled to the river Jökulsá á Breiðamerkursandi to flow into the atlantic ocean. That’s the shortest river on Iceland, while the lake is the deepest with 248 m and a size of 18 km². The river is only is 500 m long. Thus, the low tide is able to pull water out of the lake and this drift take the ice blocks along.

Soon, you can see here much more on Iceland. Not only in bw, but also in color.

So, stay tuned. Take care!
