  Jokulsarlon in Iceland
by coceng
 
 

Jokulsarlon is a lagoon.
Great ice floes are separated from the icy glaciers to float eerily on this lagoon !
This bizarre place didn't exist 50 years ago ! When the ice caps are shrinking, the lagoon that we can see now is formed...
Ignoring the people, I just focused on the icebergs !
I think there are names to each icebergs but I didn't check...Some of them are really big ! Some of them are smaller as they broke off from the big ones...
