This photograph was taken at a boat trip on one of the most famous glacier lagoon in Iceland, Jökulsárlón. It is situated at the south end of the glacier Vatnajökull between Skaftafell National Park and Höfn. Appearing first only in 1934-1935, the lake grew from 7.9 km² in 1975 to at least 18 km² today because of heavy melting of the Icelandic glaciers. Approaching a depth of 200 m, Jökulsárlón is now probably the second deepest lake in Iceland. Next few days I will post more pictures from my trip to Jökulsárlón.
