Iceland’s Iconic Icebergs by Sarah Marino http://sarahmarinophoto.com/jokulsarlon/

The incredible black beach that flanks the Jokulsarlon Glacial Lake in Skaftafell National Park southern Iceland is a recently new phenomenon. Reputedly formed by global warming, the lake, now the deepest in Iceland, is the direct result of a huge glacier starting to melt in the 1930s. But what makes this beach really weird are the forbidding icebergs on two sides of it, and the enormous blocks of ice that can be seen glittering on the stark background of the black volcanic sand.
