From another planet... by XavierJamonet From another planet... by XavierJamonet
Hello all,

Here is a picture from my last trip to Iceland... these are huge blocks of ice on the Jokulsarlon beach... These blocks come from the widest glacier in Europe : Vatnajokull.
We had a strange light this morning, there was high clouds in the sky, creating a solar halo around the sun.
I used a B&W nd400 filter for this picture (thanks Alex ;) ). This filter gives a strong warm balance to the colors that I wouldn't totally correct... The sky was more gray in reality, but I think these colors suits quite well the scene.

Canon EOS 5D mkII - EF 17-40f4L - B&W nd400 filter - Lee nd Grad - tripod

I can just sit here and look at your amazing pictures the whole day long! They are all amazing, and I think, I may comment on each and every one of them. It is a pure joy for me to see them.

amazing shot, those pieces of ice looks like clouds with the blue and white colors, are really facinating... if you often look to the sky make sure to locate a star that brights blue and white...and dont miss a shot you have one of the best camera, and a telephoto lenses

Awesome location, and subjects.. but I have to agree with Alex on the light, and colours of the scene, they have been pushed too far beyond reality imo.

this is a superb shot given the conditions - I love how the ice has stayed completely still and is fluffy white in contrast to everything else in the background and foreground!

when you say huge blocks of ice, how big do you mean? i am wondering how big these blocks of ice are.

Hello Dan,
These blocks on the picture were 2 to 5 meters wide, but on the shore you can find some very bigger blocks.
It's simply amazing, a really inspiring place.
