The Best of Iceland

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon on the southern coast of Iceland lies just off Highway 1 and is a must see for anyone travelling the country. If you visit from late spring to late summer, be absolutely sure to stay for sunset and sunrise, which combine into one 6+ hour orgasm of magic lighting. The colors burst over the glacier lagoon and the tide pulls icebergs out to the nearby black sand beach, which is only a few hundred meteres away. Once the sun has done its thing over the lagoon, all the photographers head to the beach to snap long exposure of the waves cascading over the crystal clear ice, which sits perfectly contrasted atop the deep black sand. Its truly a magical site that will transfix you. I couldn’t pull myself away and was stuck at the lagoon from 7:30 PM to nearly 4 AM, watching this magical show of colors play out. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, but there is soo much to see in Iceland!
