ÍS: Icebergs on the Beach

Iceland36 Jökulsárlón, the Glacial Lagoon on the south coast of Iceland, connects the glaciers to the ocean through a small channel flowing out from the lagoon. Icebergs float out of the lagoon and then wash back up on the black sand beach. Standing among the huge chunks of ice, you can often see seals bobbing in the breakers. The first time I visited this beach was at sunrise (during a hiking trip with a few friends in Skaftafell). It was surreal, and so I wrote a little poem about the experience.
