Desaturated iceberg

Jökulsárlón is a glacial lagoon, bordering Vatnajökull National Park in southeastern Iceland. Its still, blue waters are dotted with icebergs from the surrounding Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier, part of larger Vatnajökull Glacier. The Glacier Lagoon flows through a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean, leaving chunks of ice on a black sand beach. In winter, the fish-filled lagoon hosts hundreds of seals.

The beauty of the lagoon and its magical surroundings led many filmmakers to use it as a background for the action of their moveis. Some of the most famous moveis with parts shot at the lagoon are: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider; James Bond: Die Another Day & A View to Kill; Batman Begins and Prometheus.

This is another picture from the desaturated project, where the colours are desatureted to a point that the photo almost looks like it’s B&W, but a smooth touch of colour emphasises key elements of the composition.
