Black sands and blue ice

By Richsr
Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload, very much appreciated.

Busy January so far so not much time for other things, so sorry if I am not getting to visit your work that often.

The beach at Jokularlon and the washed in icebergs gave some good image making opportunities.

thanks for looking
Regards
Richard

The ice looks so translucent and the contrast with the black sand is nigh on perfect. Add in some 15sec water and a cracking sky. I bet you were buzzing here, Richard.
