“Dissolution of Eternity”
The Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon under fiery light, in it’s endless cadence of moving pieces of ice, teaches us lessons of impermanence and dissolution.
This place is quite simply the most beautiful work of moving art I’ve ever seen in my short life.
After two trips to Iceland and much waiting, finally had the chance to witness an epic sunset at Jokulsarlon, with enough time to choose from the endless possible angles and compositions. Due to the fast moving pieces of ice, doing a long exposure would be impossible. Since the ice pieces were a few meters aways from the shore and I wanted to get the classic immersive look of ultra wide angle lenses, had to enter into the almost frozen water to get this image. From time to time, chunks of melted ice would meet my legs with great subtleness, making me fell like a part of the whole moving scenario. Unforgettable.
