Jagged Edge | Jökulsárlón, Iceland
This moment marks the end of a long journey. This ice spent thousands of years in a nearby glacier before being spit out into a lagoon, where it floated for days. The tides took the icebergs out to sea; the surf pushed them back onto the beach. I found them at night during the summer solstice, when it never really gets dark. Of the dozens of icebergs scattered along the beach that night, these were the biggest, with the large one almost as tall as me. I returned to them at 3:00 am for this sunrise shot. A few hours later, these icebergs were gone, melted and crushed by the tides and waves of the North Atlantic.
